The Likud remains a social party, even after Moshe Kahlon's resignation, Public Diplomacy and Diaspora Affairs Minister Yuli Edelstein (Likud) said Thursday.

In an interview with Israel Radio, Edelstein asserted his support for Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's intention to seek government approval for the "Levy Report,"  which calls on the government to transform West Bank outposts on state land into legal settlements.

Edelstein said that there is no connection between the issue of the "Levy Report" and elections, and the government should not be completely paralyzed in the coming months leading up to elections.
