In what appeared to be criticism directed at Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid, former foreign minister Avigdor Liberman said at the opening of Tuesday's Likud Beytenu faction meeting that he had never seen the phenomenon of someone already saying they want to be prime minister when they "haven't even warmed up their chair as an MK yet."

"I've never seen this happen. Days after the election, instead of talking about what can be done to help the country, about the middle class, or asking 'where is the money?', a person only talks about how they want to be prime minister," Liberman stated, after Lapid was quoted as saying earlier this week that he could replace Prime Minster Binyamin Netanyahu in a year-and-a-half if he opted to remain in the opposition.
