With a second election only five months after the last one, it’s tempting to think that not much has changed.
The decision could come into play if Netanyahu changes his mind and decides to grant a reserved slot on the list to former justice minister Ayelet Shaked.
Netanyahu is interested in a merger between his Likud and Kahlon’s Kulanu parties.
The Kulanu party has been hovering on the threshold in numerous polls over the last month.
Kahlon made the threat, even though Kulanu is expected to fall from its current 10 seats to four or five, according to the polls.
Kahlon is planning on meeting with the Swiss president, finance ministers and senior representatives from the private sector.
The Israeli and German finance ministers signed a similar agreement in May, strengthening cooperation in the fields of financial technology and financial cybersecurity.
The American-Israeli professor is a graduate of Tel Aviv University and the University of Chicago, and has held his current position since July 2009.
Kahlon said the economic sanctions led by the US on Iran are proving themselves effective: "We should be thankful to the US."
Kahlon said that sanctions on Iran "contribute to removing a threat to Israel's security and to the security of the entire free world."
