Lieberman plans to submit no-confidence motion

Israel Beiteinu Leader Avigdor Lieberman followed up his criticism of Prime Minister Ehud Olmert's convergence plan by announcing that he would submit a no-confidence motion over the issue at Monday's Knesset session. During coalition talks, Lieberman said the convergence plan was the main hurdle to his party's inclusion in the government. "We will battle the convergence plan in any way possible," he said. "We are completely opposed to it." Lieberman has already made it clear that he plans to be a vocal member of the opposition, which will be led by Likud leader Binyamin Netanyahu, whose party is the largest outside the coalition. In addition to Lieberman's motion, the Knesset will also hear a no- confidence motion by Netanyahu over the hike in bread prices.
