New Hope leader Gideon Sa’ar, who is being wooed by the Likud Party in an attempt to form a coalition, slammed Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s handling of Tuesday’s cabinet meeting.
Sa’ar referred to a fight in the meeting over the appointment of a temporary justice minister and Netanyahu bypassing the law in an attempt to appoint a loyalist to the sensitive post, a move which Attorney-General Avichai Mandelblit deemed to be illegal.
“The saga surrounding the appointment of the justice minister, which reached a peak in a delusional cabinet meeting, is further testimony of the need to replace the government,” Sa’ar wrote on Twitter.
Likud MK Galit Distal Atbaryan said Sa’ar’s response indicated that “attorney Sa’ar doesn’t understand the law – and politician Sa’ar is stuck in the swamp of the deep state on the Left.”
Yamina leader Naftali Bennett, also being wooed by the Likud, said that “Israel has reached the edge of anarchy. I call on everyone to understand the fate of the moment and display national responsibility. Israel needs a functioning and stable government.”Opposition leader Yair Lapid wrote that “anyone who even for a moment considered signing any agreement with Netanyahu has received a reminder that there is no chance he will honor any agreement he signs.”
Lapid said Netanyahu’s behavior was also proof of his disdain for the law.
“Anyone offered a rotation by the Likud or the prime minister should carefully watch today’s conduct at the cabinet session, and think to himself what such a government will look like and what agreements with him will be worth,” said Tourism Minister Orit Farkash-Hacohen.
Labor leader Merav Michaeli called on Sa’ar and Bennett to end talks with Likud on forming a government.Meretz MK Tamar Zandberg called the incident a “horror show of mafioso behavior” from Netanyahu, claiming that it was another attempt of his to escape accountability for his ongoing trial for bribery, fraud and breach of trust.
By contrast, Religious Zionist Party leader Bezalel Smotrich mocked Bennett, saying that he would help form “a government of change” that would allow Mandelblit to act as “the real prime minister.”
