      Yesh Atid Against Referendum on Land Concessions

      The Yesh Atid party decided, Monday, to oppose a bill requiring a popular vote on Israeli land concessions. In doing so, the party lined up with Justice Minister Tzipi Livni's Hatenu'ah party and Yisrael Beyteinu leader Avigdor Lieberman.

      Barring any changes, the only parties supporting the proposal are Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's Likud party and Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party).
