Yesh Atid: If Habayit Hayehudi Leaves, We'll Follow

The Yesh Atid party said, Monday morning, that the bringing of hareidi-religious parties into the government at the expense of Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) will result in Yesh Atid quitting the coalition, according to a Monday-morning report by the Ma'ariv daily.

Yesh Atid was responding to a Sunday report by the newspaper that entities close to Prime Minister and Likud Chairman Binyamin Netanyahu were planning to bring in the hareidi parties at the expense of Habayit Hayehudi, a few months after formation of the government, when significant progress has been made on the diplomatic front.
