Netanyahu wants to remain in politics despite the corruption process

Netanyahu on Monday dismissed media reports that he had accepted an out-of-court settlement with prosecutors that would have forced him to withdraw from politics. He will remain leader of the Likud party, he assured.

According to Israeli media reports, Netanyahu’s legal team negotiated a deal that included an admission of a criminal offense intended for “moral” misconduct. This would result in a seven-year ban on politics for the long-serving head of government.

“False claims have been published in the media over the past few days about things that I have allegedly agreed to,” the ex-prime minister said. He did not agree to any admission of moral wrongdoing. “That’s just wrong.”

Netanyahu, who is currently the opposition leader in parliament, has been accused of accepting improper gifts. He is also said to have promised owners of media groups regulatory advantages in exchange for friendly reporting. The process is likely to take several months, and an appeal may take years.
