Likud: Kadima Talks, While We Act
Commenting on Kadima's advocacy Sunday of the tent city protest in Tel Aviv against the high price of housing, the Likud said in a statement that “Kadima is once again attempting to make headlines in areas where it already failed. During the time it controlled the government, the amount of building in Israel fell, and the number of lots made available for building fell to 15,000 annually, as opposed to the 30,000 opened up annually by the Netanyahu administration. The housing crisis worsened during the period of Kadima rule, which completely ignored the problem.
“Prime Minister Netanyahu has been advancing legislation that will increase the amount of lots available, and a reform in real estate laws that will speed up planning and construction. Kadima talks, while the Likud acts,” the statement said.
