Begin: Whoever thinks I’m resigning from the Knesset must be an idiot

MK Bennie Begin (Likud) reassured the public that he will continue representing his party in the Knesset Monday, a day after his resignation from his minister-without-portfolio post took effect.

"I heard and read in the last day an assessment or a rumor that I plan to resign from the Knesset…I have no such intention," he announced at the beginning of a Likud faction meeting, and was met with applause.

Begin added that whoever thinks he plans to resign from the Knesset "must be a bit of an idiot who does not recognize the importance of the Knesset and the activities of its committees and does not know the way in which I work. I have a political field in which I am fenced, and I do the best I can within it."
