      Danon: Yesh Atid, Bayit Yehudi and Shas – In


      The Yesh Atid party, Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) and Shas will be in the next government, MK Danny Danon (Likud) predicted, speaking Tuesday to Arutz Sheva. Danon referred to the three parties as Likud’s “natural partners.”

      Danon said Shas higher-ups have indicated flexibility regarding the issue of hareidi-religious IDF service.

      Regarding the results of the elections, Danon said, “We are pleased the Netanyahu is the Prime Minister, but we are not pleased by the mandates. We were too complacent and we paid the price.” Likud Beytenu won 31 seats in the elections, down from a total of 42 for the Likud and Yisrael Beytenu parties in the current Knesset.
