Report: Likud Agrees to Re-open Livni Agreement


Following the request of the Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) and Yesh Atid parties, senior sources in the Likud party say the party has expressed a willingness to re-open the coalition agreement it signed with Tzipi Livni's Hatenu'ah party and reconsider the authority given to Livni in negotiations with the Palestinian Authority, according to a Friday report by Ma'ariv/nrg. Under the agreement, Livni stands to be Justice Minister.

The sources told the newspaper that all of Livni's authorities will change and some will be taken away from her. Until now Likud-Beyteinu has said that the agreement cannot be re-opened.
