When he claimed that "Lapid apparently does not understand what the role of the Finance Minister is." The Shabbat" because "since the prime minister was finance minister for longer than him - so I probably do know what the role of the finance

It's a good debate." Lapid further claimed that his relationship with Lieberman is "very good" and referred to Lieberman's statement in an interview with Walla! that he and Gantz are courting the ultra-orthodox factions and said: "Everyone has elections these days."

In response to the question of whether he felt that Shalapid conveyed a lack of experience in his conduct, he said that he "thinks that first of all you need the ability to withstand pressure, and it is clear that there is pressure from the Histadrut and here the teachers press and here the interns. You don't need to get into vibrations, you don't need to squirm. If there is pressure - you have to stand up, I think I managed This in a very responsible way. I also saw in Lapid's last interview in one of the newspapers that he said, 'I understand that the Minister of Finance's role is to protect the coffers.' .
In an interview, Lieberman said that Lapid and Gantz are conducting a "fatal courtship" with the ultra-Orthodox.
"What bothers me is this romance of Gantz and Lapid with Deri and Gafni," he said.
"In any case, we will not be there, and unfortunately it is clear to me today that in order to become prime minister, both Lapid and Gantz will be willing to sacrifice our home Israel in order to form a coalition with them."
