Defiant Bennett willing to go for New Elections


Likud-Beyteinu can only assemble a coalition of 57 MKs, and has not succeeded at separating The Jewish Home from its bloc arrangement with Yesh Atid. Jewish Home Chairman Naftali Bennett says they cannot agree with HaTnuah helming PA negotiations as it leans too far to the left. “We will not budge towards such a coalition, even if this means new elections.” Bennett and Lapid control 31 MKs, and one of their parties is crucial for the Likud-Beyteinu expected coalition.
