MK Asher: Netanyahu Caved to Lapid Again


MK Yaakov Asher (United Torah Judaism) on Sunday accused Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu of caving in to pressure by Finance Minister Yair Lapid.

Asher said, following the passing of Lapid’s exemption from VAT housing plan, that he tried to insert a clause into the plan stipulating that even persons who did not serve in the IDF will be eligible for an exemption in certain cases. However, he claimed, Netanyahu rejected the idea under pressure from Lapid.
