Using Facebook and other forums, Yisrael Beitenu leader Avigdor Lieberman stated “the voters have spoken their minds” and the incoming administration must heed that voice, first and foremost regarding the issue of ‘sharing the burden’.
Lieberman also stressed the need for the new coalition to place a heavy emphasis on lowering housing costs in Israel. He is also calling for the implementation of the so-called Norwegian Law, which compels cabinet ministers to resign as MKs, thereby serving as cabinet ministers but not MKs.
Such a move permits others on the party lists who were not successful in entering Knesset to take those seats that are freed up by cabinet ministers.
