Bayit Yehudi will not try to stop the forming of the coalition, Likud Beytenu MK Tzachi Hanegbi told Army Radio on Thursday morning.
"Naftali Bennett will not work to thwart the forming of the government, this goes against the worldview of Bayit Yehudi voters," he said.
Other Likud officials asserted to Army Radio that Bennett has no choice but to join the government, because voters would be angry with him if Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is forced to go to elections again because of Bayit Yehudi's refusal to join the coalition.
Bayit Yehudi voters would also be angry with the party's head if Netanyahu forms a left-wing government with Tzipi Livni, Labor and Kadima, the Likud officials said.
