In an interview with Kan, on the morning of May 28, Avigdor Lieberman, head of the Israel Our Home party, stated, “My proposal to join the government is no longer relevant.”

“Even if I am offered a post in the war cabinet, even if I am offered the post of Pope, I will not join Netanyahu’s coalition. It is necessary to change the government,” Lieberman said.

On May 27, during a meeting of the NDI faction in the Knesset, Lieberman criticized the head of government, emphasizing that “Netanyahu’s continued power jeopardizes the future of the State of Israel.” He stated, “This failed government, torn apart by internal contradictions, has not achieved any of the goals of the war.”

Lieberman appealed to Gideon Saar, Benny Gantz, and Yair Lapid, urging them to join forces and create an operational headquarters. He proposed forming a coalition of Zionist parties to create a new government within the current Knesset, and if necessary, push for early elections.

“Our duty is to unite all the healthy forces of Israeli society and the political system,” Lieberman continued. “This is necessary for victory and for creating a reasonable, functional government that works for the benefit of society.”

Lieberman also called on Likud MPs who “agree with his assessment” to form a coalition “to replace the government and the prime minister.”
