Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was having trouble finding a majority in the government to approve the Trajtenberg Committee recommendations, Army Radio reported.

Netanyahu decided to bring the recommendations to a vote on Monday despite objections from nearly all of his coalition partners. 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.
