December 15, 2012 20:27

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is considering the option of appointing Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon as Foreign Minister, following Avigdor Liberman's accouncement that he would be resigning, Channel 2 reported Saturday night.

Liberman is expected to officially resign on Sunday, in light of a pending indictment against him for fraud and breach of public trust.

In a statement published by his office, Liberman said his legal counsel advised him he did not have to resign. Nonetheless, he said he would do so in order to fight the charges against him, thereby enabling him to serve in the next government if exonerated.
