Orlev: Many Calls for Bayit Yehudi to Leave Government


Member of Knesset Zevulun Orlev, who is running for the chairmanship of the Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party), said, Thursday, that his office has been flooded with messages supporting his call for the party to leave the coalition immediatley since Wednesday's Knesset vote to defeat his bill to protect Jewish homes in Judea and Samaria from demolition under a Supreme Court order.

Orlev said he will carry out a special survey on his Facebook page to hear the public's view. He said, "The Facebook survey will give me the spirit of the public of NRP supporters regarding sitting in the government. It is not scientific research but certainly one that will provide direction regarding public opinion."
