MK Amir Peretz (Hatnua) spoke of the deficit and said: "The Bibi-Steinitz plan to cheat the public before the elections boomeranged. Today, every citizen knows that what they did is an attempt to gain time in order to harm our pensions and savings. Bibi is intensifying the fiscal crisis and leading the way to a social catastrophe which will harm the middle class."
Peretz added: "The outcome we received is a split and harmed Israeli society." (Moran Azulay)
