Uncertainty After Likud, Yesh Atid 2nd Negotiations


The second negotiation meeting between Likud and Yesh Atid, held in Kfar Maccabiah, ended just a short while ago. Likud reported that during the negotiations, Professor Eugene Kandel from the National Economics Council at the Prime Minister's Office outlined what Likud viewed as an acceptable solution to the issue of equal burden. 

According to Likud sources, the proposal is essentially an upgrade of the Ya'alon outline, which was previously rejected by Lapid, and which focuses on recruitment goals and not quotas and would extend army recruitment to the age of 26.
