Opposition Leader Herzog Calls On Finance Minister To Resign, Topple Government


The Jerusalem Post reports: Opposition leader Isaac Herzog (Zionist Union) called on Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon (Kulanu) to pull out of the government on Monday after the cabinet approved Yisrael Beytenu’s entrance into the coalition.

“This is your moment” Herzog said and called on Kahlon “to take a chance and prevent this grave danger” pointing to the  addition of Avigdor Liberman’s right-wing party to the governing coalition. If Kahlon were to leave the government, along with his Kulanu party the government would not have its needed majority in the Israeli Knesset.

Herzog who has been fighting to keep legitimacy within his own party, amid calls for his resignation, said that members of the Zionist Union would be better suited turning their anger and aggression against the government than against their own party.
