"Only one person stands a chance of forming the next government, and that person is Binyamin Netanyahu," Likud faction chair Gideon Sa'ar said on Wednesday evening.
Speaking after a Likud delegation met with President Shimon Peres in coalition consultation talks, Sa'ar
countered Kadima claims that the centrist party should form the next coalition due to its one mandate lead over the Likud.
"There is no arithmetic possibility, not even theoretical, of [Kadima leader Tzipi] Livni forming the government."
"The balance is entirely clear," he summarized.
