Sa’ar says ‘clear’ Netanyahu lacks majority, calls for ‘government of change’

As Likud allies start to pressure him to join Prime Minister Netanyahu’s bloc, New Hope leader Gideon Sa’ar says all the options for creating an anti-Netanyahu coalition must first be exhausted.

“It is clear that Netanyahu doesn’t have a majority for a coalition headed by him,” Sa’ar says in a statement.

“Now we must work to fulfil the potential for forming a government of change. As I announced on election night, ego won’t be a factor.”
