MK Tzipi Livni (Zionist Union) on Thursday criticized Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for tapping Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman to serve in the coalition over her co-party leader Issac Herzog.

"History will not forgive Netanyahu for what he has done to Israel," Livni wrote in a post on Facebook.

Netanyahu was expected to offer Moshe Ya'alon the role of foreign minister Thursday as negotiations to bring Yisrael Beytenu into the coalition and officially make Avigdor Liberman defense minister in place of Ya'alon.

"When Netanyahu needed to chose between moderate and extreme, democracy and nationalism, between peace and isolation and security deterioration- he choose what was comfortable for him politically, the extreme Right," Livni stated.
