Opposition Leader Tzipi Livni (Kadima), in an interview with Israel Radio Wednesday, said that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has acted according to economic theories that lack compassion and collapsed already a long time ago. Livni also said that Netanyahu has not maintained his responsibility to organize meetings with the opposition leader to update her on his policies.

Education Minister Gideon Sa'ar responded to Livni's remarks, saying that the Knesset had not heard Livni remark on economic issues until now, jibing that it is good that  Netanyahu and not Livni served as economic minister during the global economic crisis.

He added that it is the responsibility of the government to pay attention to public sentiments, and that he trusts Netanyahu to apply an even-handed approach to the current economic issues.
