If Israel Beiteinu doesn't recommend Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu for prime minister, the Likud will lessen its planned commitments to Avigdor Lieberman's party, a senior party official said Tuesday. The official told Israel Radio that in previous governments, there were numerous occasions in which a party that won around 15 seats - the number of mandates gained by Israel Beiteinu - did not receive senior portfolios. "It's not written in law that Israel Beiteinu must get one of the top three ministries," said the official. On Monday, Israel Beiteinu's chief negotiator MK Stas Meseznikov confirmed that that party would demand either the Defense, Foreign or Finance Ministry.
