Serhat TUNAR -TDO- The crisis continues after both the right and left bloc failed to reach the number of MPs needed to form a coalition government following elections in Israel on 17 September.
Former Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman, who played a key role in the coalition crisis in Israel, said he would not support the formation of a coalition government led by neither Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu nor Blue-and-white Alliance leader Benny Gantz, and said the country was heading for a third election.
At a press conference on the issue, Liberman blamed Prime Minister Netanyahu and his blue-and-white leader Gantz for the failure to form a government.
He said Netanyahu's party, Likud and Blue-White, had made every effort to form a unity government, and that they were doing their best to form a unity government as promised. Liberman added that they were heading for an early election for the third time and that the reason for the re-election was lack of leadership.
