MK Binyamin Netanyahu (Likud) announced that he would not object to participating in a coalition with any other party, so long as its agenda doesn't contradict the Likud party's platform. The leading Likud leadership candidate expressed his belief that the reported drop in Likud's popularity did not accurately portray reality. He was confident that his party would double its current Knesset representation. The former prime minister attributed his personal decrease in popularity to his lack of campaigning during his term as finance minister. He mentioned in an Israel Radio interview that he undertook "painful measures to save the economy," and thus he could not meet party activists and didn't distribute jobs.
