State of Palestine: Former Israeli DefMin Lieberman casts vote in Israel's general election

Disputed Territory, Nokdim
September 17, 2019 at 08:40 GMT +00:00 · Published

Avigdor Lieberman, the former Israeli Defence Minister and Chairman of the right-wing nationalist Yisrael Beitenu party, cast his vote in the Israeli general elections, in the West Bank town of Nokdim on Tuesday.

Footage shows Lieberman arriving at the polling station with his wife, alongside whom he cast his ballot.

The Yisrael Beitenu candidate then addressed the media and said that a third election can be expected, as the needed majority of 61 seats will not be reached.

Lieberman added that his party will "only support a broad, liberal, national government consisting of Yisrael Beitenu, Likud and Blue and White. No other government will join us and we will not be part of it."

New general elections are held this Tuesday in Israel for the second time in less than six months.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who failed to form a coalition government after the first election, is now trying to win a record fifth term.
