On Sunday morning, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu promised to make Kulanu leader Moshe Kahlon finance minister if re-elected.

Kahlon responded back saying that Netanyahu has made similar promises in the past, promising to make Kahlon head of the Israel Land Authority, as well as Finance minister, but did not follow through.

"If the public allows me, and Kulanu, to have enough power, we will be able to ensure that the whole country will run smoothly and not in the failed direction of [Yesh Atid head and Finance Minister Yair] Lapid."
