Tourism Minister Yariv Levin (the Likud) claimed that Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Liberman demanded three ministers and five portfolios during coalition negotiations, he told Kan Bet on Thursday morning.

During the interview, Levin blamed Liberman for the coalition failure, saying that "it was clear to me that Liberman was not interested in entering the government," after he received a small number of seats during the April elections. "He decided that he was not interested in entering the government, so he set conditions that were clearly impossible [to achieve]."Levin added that Liberman's demands were "crazy."

However, Yisrael Beytenu hit back at Levin's claim, calling him the "ultimate liar," and saying that he "should be recorded in the Guinness Book of Records for being the ultimate liar during the coalition talks," Mako reported.
