Lieberman keeps options open for coalition deal

Text size Aa Aa

Yisrael Beiteinu party leader, Avigdor Lieberman is keeping his options open, having declared himself available to form a coalition with either Kadima or Likud. With no one party able to form a government on its own, the political horse trading is likely to get underway as soon as the polls close. Lieberman and his far-right party are in third place, making him a possible linchpin for any coalition.

Although on paper an alliance would look more likely between his nationalist-leaning party which is dominated by Russian speaking immigrants and the right-wing Likud, it is not a foregone conclusion. Lieberman could find common ground with the centrist Kadima party which has also campaigned on nationalist issues.
