Finance Minister Ronnie Bar-On on Monday accused opposition leader Binyamin Netanyahu of working against the good of the economy by preventing Shas from joining a Tzipi Livni-led coalition. "Binyamin Netanyahu has succeeded politically, but as a public servant he should have acted for the country," Bar-On told Army Radio. "This may have been his job as leader of the opposition, but he has caused immense damage to the economy." Bar-On called for the establishment of a Kadima-Labor coalition immediately after the elections in order to build a stable government. Nevertheless, he dismissed calls for unifying the two parties. "A broad, national and professional coalition must be built in order to safeguard the economy," said the finance minister, who also called for the elections to be held in 60 days.
