Elkin: Bennett, Lapid to Blame for Coalition Problems


Likud MK Ze'ev Elkin commented Sunday on coalition negotiations between Likud-Beytenu and the Jewish Home.

Elkin blamed Jewish Home and Yesh Atid for hindering the process of establishing  a new government due to what he referred to as their demand not to include the religious factions.

Elkin also alleged that Naftali Bennett was the first to receive an offer to join the government and that if new elections took place, which may lead to the establishment of a leftist government, it would spell endless problems for religious Zionism.
