A recent poll showed if a new centrist party headed by Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon, former Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon and former Likud Minister Gideon Saar ran under a joint ticket, it would emerge the largest party with 25 seats as compared to 21 seats for Likud.
Saar was interviewed by Kol Berama Radio on Monday night the eve of 8 Sivan. He spoke about ongoing government efforts against PA (Palestinian Authority) illegals inside Green Line Israel and a number of other matters.
Speaking with Moshe Glasner, Saar explained he is still a member of Likud today and he is not currently weighing a change of party. He explained running with others is speculation and he remains loyal to Likud and what the party represents. “I was offered to leave years ago and I refused” he added.
Regarding dealing with PA (Palestinian Authority) illegals, he explains it is not enough to release slogans but the matter must be addressed seriously. He once again points out that 90% of terrorists responsible for terror attacks during recent months were PA illegals.
