Former foreign minister Tzipi Livni has her sights set on returning to her former post, and has already sent messengers twice to speak to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s confidants about joining forces in the coalition he is expected to form following the upcoming election, Israel Radio diplomatic analyst Chico Menashe reported on Tuesday.

The report came amid increasing indications that Yisrael Beytenu chairman Avigdor Liberman would not be able to be a minister for the foreseeable future due to the ongoing legal investigation against him. Sources in his party said he planned to head the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee following the January 22 election until his legal troubles ended.
