MK Gideon Sa’ar from the Likud issued was interviewed on channel 12 news on Motzei Shabbos and said that Netanyahu will not be able to form a coalition in the next two rounds of elections should they be needed. He urged the Likud leadership to hold immediate primaries. He also said that Netanyahu’s attempt to call the indictment against him “An attempt to change leadership” is irresponsible and aims to destroy the legal system that Israel is based upon.

A statement issued by the Likud leadership in response said: “The head of the Likud party is Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. He brought the Likud 32 mandates worth of votes that all have his name written on them as being the head of the party. It is sad to see that MK Saar shows a complete lack of loyalty and he is always ready to undermine the Prime  Minister as is his usual habit.”
