United Torah Judaism MK Moshe Gafni says his party will work to undo anything that outgoing Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman did while in office.

“Everything that has even a hint that Yvette Liberman was involved with, I will do everything to erase,” Gafni says to the Knesset plenum, using Liberman’s original Russian name.

Liberman, a staunch secularist, has long been seen as an enemy by the Haredi political parties, and has often campaigned against religious coercion.

The Haredi parties have demanded that the slated incoming government undo two key pieces of legislation they strongly oppose: a tax on sugary drinks and a tax on disposable tableware.
