Shomron Leader Predicts Instability in Next Government

The Likud may be the Knesset’s largest party and will form the next government, but the right has nevertheless been significantly weakened, the head of the Samaria (Shomron) Residents’ Committee, Benny Katzover, said on Wednesday.

“The power of the nationalist camp is down, we’ve got a tie, and it seems as though democracy has gone bankrupt,” Katzover told Arutz Sheva as results from the election indicated that the right-wing and left-wing blocs are now evenly matched with 60 seats each, if one counts the Arab parties as part of the left-wing bloc.
