Israel Beiteinu leader Avigdor Lieberman told Israel Radio on Thursday that he "knows exactly" who he would recommend that President Shimon Peres entrust with building a coalition, but that people should respect the fact that he would not share it with the media. When prodded regarding the ongoing corruption investigations and his upcoming trip abroad, which he has refused to divulge details about, he accused the media of a "delegitimization campaign." He claimed the election results, which have apparently given the largest bloc to the right wing, proved the failure of the media, which he claimed had been trying to "advise" and even "coerce" people into voting for the Left. The Israel Beiteinu leader went on to say that the current difficult financial period was the ideal time for Israel to boost its aliyah campaign, since most immigration to Israel had been due to economic crises.
