The “Likud Beiteinu” party, a merger of the Likud and the Yisrael Beiteinu party headed by Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, will remain, he told reporters on Monday.
Israel Beiteinu had the option of backing out of the agreement for a period of time after the elections, but Lieberman said he is sticking with Likud.
He admitted that there are members in his party who are not happy about the results of the elections, which saw the Likud in a tailspin but winning the largest number of Knesset seats by virtue of the merger.
