"In Israel the people do not decide who goes into politics but the law of (Attorney-General Menahem) Mazuz rules," exclaimed Russian-born billionaire Arkady Gaydamak, explaining why he had no intention of entering Israeli politics when quizzed by reporters following a meeting with Knesset Speaker Dalia Itzik (Kadima). The businessman also met with GIL Chairman Rafi Eitan, Knesset Director-General Avi Balashnikov and UTJ MK Meir Porush. Regarding Israel Beiteinu Chairman Avigdor Lieberman's entry into the coalition, Gaydamak said that Lieberman was a "responsible and experienced man" who had proved his ability at the head of an important political party.
