United Torah Judaism chairman MK Moshe Gafni said on Saturday night that, in his opinion, former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was wrong in not getting the state budget approved when he was Prime Minister. "I spoke to Netanyahu many times and he said 'yes yes.' We had arguments about this, I thought he was wrong and I told him that. There were also issues I was not too involved in, [such as] the issue of the rotation [with Benny Gantz]," Gafni said in an interview with Channel 12 News. He commented on the remarks of his faction member, MK Yisrael Eichler, who said Netanyahu should have vacated his seat after losing the election. "Eichler is wrong, he probably does not understand that as soon as Netanyahu leaves - the Likud falls apart."

Gafni also clarified, "We are not working for Netanyahu's survival. We are working for the traditional public that goes with Netanyahu. If the traditional public goes to another party and supports someone else then we will support them. I want the State of Israel to be a Jewish state and the traditional public to be dominant."
