Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said Monday that he was against new elections given the present turmoil in the region.

He added, however, that he preferred new elections to changing the composition of the current coalition.

Speaking at Yisraek Beytenu's faction meeting, said that he did not see potential elections leading to a big change from the current composition of the government, saying Likud, Yisrael Beyteni and Nayit Yehudi would get as much as 60 mandates between them.
