Knesset member Elazar stern («Yesh Atid») said in an interview with NEWSru.co.il that Netanyahu can keep his job until the day when he would be charged. «I know that by law he should not resign before the end of the court, but in practice it will not be able to continue to run the country, at that time, as all his thoughts will be occupied by the indictment, said stern. – Pay attention to the fact that his situation is heavier than that, which was Ehud Olmert, when he took the decision to resign. He left his post when the allegations have not been, when there was only a recommendation of the police. If Olmert had gone then, it is obvious that Netanyahu will have to leave in the case of the indictment. Incidentally, in the case of Olmert, it was about crimes committed before he became Prime Minister. In the case of Netanyahu we’re talking about actions committed in the office of the Prime Minister.»
Knesset member stern added: «the Investigation of offences committed in the residence of the Prime Minister, also have to it most relevant, but we’re not talking. But when it comes to corruption and betrayal of public trust by the Premier, obviously, it will not be able to keep his job».
Elazar stern added: «the Current situation on the one hand sad, but on the other hand, is proof of mental health of our law enforcement system».
Answering the question about the political situation in connection with the investigation, the Deputy stern said, «Now comes the waiting period. Hope it will be as short as possible and the investigation will be completed in the shortest possible time. The delay of the investigation is not useful to anyone».
