Begin rejects Livni statements: Majority of voters want Netanyahu as PM

Bennie Begin, number 5 on Likud's Knesset slate, on Sunday dismissed remarks made earlier by Kadima leader Tzipi Livni, who said that her party had won the election and should be tasked with forming a coalition. "Things are clear," Begin said. "Everyone understands that 65 MKs were voted in by voters who wanted Netanyahu to be prime minister." Livni had said "You don't need to be a math genius to know that 28 is more than 27," referring to the fact Kadima won the greatest number of seats in the elections.
