President Moshe Katsav named in two sexual harassment complaints, said Saturday he won't step aside until police have completed their investigation.
Several MKs have demanded that Katsav resign immediately.
In an interview broadcast Saturday on Israel Radio, Katsav insisted that he is innocent. "Members of the Knesset are coming out with demands ... to fire (me), to suspend (me)."
"Again, we have to enable the police to at least complete the investigation," he said.
Katsav was questioned twice by police this week about allegations that he sexually harassed two female employees. Officers also searched the president's residence, seizing documents and Katsav's personal computer.
