MK: Talks of Lapid/Bennett Alliance are 'Naive'


MK Ofer Shelah of Yesh Atid told Arutz 10 that there is no alliance between his party and the Jewish Home Part, despite reports that the two have formed a partnership during coalition negotiations.

"There is an identity of interests in coalition negotiations between us, but I think that all of these statements about a 'union' are quite naive," said Shelah.

"This is politics," Shelah said. "You're talking about an egg that has not yet hatched. Obama's visit will create a situation in which political issues will have to become clear to those who sit in the next government," he said.
