Science, Culture and Sport Minister Ophir Paz-Pines resigned as a minister in the government Monday afternoon due to the addition of Avigdor Lieberman's Israel Beiteinu Part to the coalition earlier in the day. Paz-Pines, referring to the hawkish Lieberman, said he could not in good faith justify sitting in a government with "someone whose views and ideas are so different than mine." Paz-Pines also announced that he would compete for the Labor leadership during the party's next primary race.
