Israel minister says not quitting, leaving coalition intact

Ultra-Orthodox parties that help underpin Netanyahu's government had demanded a vote on the conscription legislation before passing the budget.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned Sunday of a nuclear arms race in the Middle East if the nuclear deal to limit Iran's nuclear program would not be changed or revoked.

"Prime Minister, to topple a right-wing government over nothing would be a historic mistake similar in size to the fall of the Shamir government in 1992", she tweeted, referring to the collapse of the coalition, led by Likud's Yitzhak Shamir, and the election that resulted in victory for Labor's Yitzhak Rabin.

Lieberman vowed on Tuesday that his Yisrael Beitenu party would "vote as one against the bill" as it stands now. Landver was the sole minister who opposed the draft bill during a vote in the Ministerial Committee on Legislation on Monday, and appealed the committee's decision in favor of the bill.

Netanyahu could call for early elections, both as a way to shore up his narrow coalition and affirm his public standing in the face of multiple corruption charges.

He was convicted of crimes including robbery in 1999, drug possession in 2009 and the latest charge of resisting arrest in 2013. Morton was a full-time officer from February 2015 through January 2017, when he became a reserve officer .

"Many countries in the Middle East are saying that they are also allowed to enrich uranium if Iran is allowed to do so; therefore, the way to prevent this danger, the nuclearization of the Middle East, is to either thoroughly correct the agreement or abrogate it", he said. A pullout by Liberman's party would leave Netanyahu's government with a one-seat margin, but in his Knesset speech on Monday, the prime minister said such a razor-thin majority was untenable to govern.

Netanyahu on Monday said his government must stay the course. But does he want to?

Netanyahu's legal woes are the focus of the coalition crisis, with a range of politicians accusing him of allowing it to worsen to give him the option of forcing early polls.

Lieberman, Yisrael Beteinu's leader, said that all five MKs [Members of the Knesset] from his party would vote against the revised bill.

In order to make us believe that the consideration about his personal future isn't on his mind at all, he may have got Lieberman to be the bad boy for which he'd be amply rewarded.

NPP, leader Conrad Sangma is expected to be sworn in as the chief minister of the state on Tuesday, March 6. The battle and the focus now shifts to this state as assembly elections are just a couple of months away.

Polls suggest Netanyahu could remain prime minister in fresh elections despite the corruption allegations.

Even if Netanyahu is forced to step down, a new Likud leader would be able to take over and keep a new government coalition, whatever its configuration, in place.

Writing in the left-wing Haaretz newspaper, political commentator Yossi Verter spelled out a possible Netanyahu strategy.

Investigators last month recommended to prosecutors that Netanyahu be indicted in at least two corruption cases against him.

Netanyahu has a chance to break the late David Ben-Gurion's record of 4,575 days in the premier's office: He would need to stay on the job until near the end of September.
