"The bottom line is he will become the second prime minister in the country's history to go to prison," Lapid said.

“There is nothing he won't do to prevent this," he added.

Netanyahu has been facing charges of fraud, bribery, and breach of trust since 2020, accusations he vehemently denies.

Ehud Olmert was the first Israeli premier to be jailed on alleged charges of corruption.

Netanyahu is currently in the process of consultation with right-wing parties to form the upcoming Israeli government, as his coalition secured a simple parliamentary majority that allows him to form the government.
