Former foreign minister Avigdor Liberman on Wednesday predicted his Likud-Beytenu party would garner more than 40 mandates in the upcoming January 22 election.

Liberman, citing a recent poll conducted by Shavakim Panorama, which projected Likud-Beytenu garnering 37-38 seats, said he is "sure it will be even higher...at least 40 seats."

Liberman also said he was confident he would be cleared of the charges of fraud and breach of trust levied against him in an indictment submitted by Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein last month.
