Bayit Yehudi to Demand: No Coalition Money
Bayit Yehudi (Jewish Home) party head revealed one of his coalition demands in a Facebook post on Tuesday morning. The Jewish Home will insist that the government not give out money to parties that join the coalition, he said.
Parties often have demands related to government spending as well as demands for various ministries in exchange for their agreement to join the coalition.
“The coalition monies are a type of ‘pocket money’ for politicians,” said party head Naftali Bennett.
