Independence, Shas and Israel Beiteinu all asked for more time to examine the recommendations before bringing them to a vote.According to the report, Netanyahu called Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who is in the Ukraine, in an attempt to convince him to support the measure. Lieberman refused the prime minister's request, Army Radio reported.
