Domestic issues will be the main priority of the next government, Yisrael Beyetnu leader Avigdor Liberman said Thursday morning ahead of the final election results.

In an interview with Israel Radio, Liberman said that a wide coalition would be the ultimate outcome of Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's task to form a government. "There is no doubt that this is what Israel needs," he said.

He mentioned equalizing the burden of national service, improving conditions for the middle class and changing the government system, as goals shared by himself, Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid and Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennet, among others. However, he said, these parties do not share ideas on the diplomatic process. Therefore, he explained, in order for the next government to be an efficient one, it will be essential to focus on internal issues.
