The Israel Beitienu party issued a statement explaining why it opposes the establishment of an alternative government: "Such a move would only postpone the inevitable and nothing more. In an alternative government of 61 knesset members, each Mk could threaten and blackmail, which would lead to the continuation of instability in the government."

The statement continued with the example of the previous alternative government agreement between Prime Minister Netanyahu and Shaul Mofaz, which "after three month ended in a resounding failure." The statement claimed that Israel Beitienu "never disqualified anyone, because we believe there is no room for disqualification in Israeli society."
