Avigdor Lieberman, who stepped down as foreign minister of Israel last week and has been indicted on charges of fraud and breach of trust, is still hopeful of playing a key role in the next government, with elections three weeks ago.

Supreme Court Justice Esther Hayut on Sunday denied the motion for a new hearing, meaning that the only possibility that Katsav has for a reduction of his sentence is through presidential pardon.
