The head of the Likud negotiating team, MK Gideon Sa'ar, said at the start of the formal coalition talks with the Israel Beiteinu party at Ramat Gan's Kfar Hamaccabia Hotel that he is building a government that he believes can last until November 2013. That is the official date of the next election, but no government has served its full term since Menahem Begin's first term from 1977 to 1981. "We are glad to open the talks to form a new government for the State of Israel," Sa'ar said at the negotiating table. "We see eye to eye with Israel Beiteinu on the situation that the country is in, and how urgent it is to form a government."
