Jewish Home: Livni as Negotiator Presents Problem

The Jewish Home party is yet to officially comment on the coalition agreement signed between Likud-Beytenu and HaTnua, but party officials did say that Livni's new role as chief negotiator will make it harder for the party to join the coalition.

"To place at the head of negotiations someone who has presided over negotiations which involved the division of Jerusalem and someone who is responsible for the disengagement, it will without a doubt make coalition talks with the Jewish Home more difficult," a party official said.
