Likud: Bennett to blame for Livni joining coalition first

Nothing is stopping the Bayit Yehudi from entering the coalition but themselves, and the offer for them to join the government still stands, a senior Likud source said Wednesday morning.

"As it says in the coalition agreement with The Tzipi Livni Party, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will stand at the head of a Ministerial Committee for Peace talks that will outline our policies in diplomatic negotiations," the source said.



After Livni joined the coalition, becoming Justice Minister and chief negotiator with the Palestinians, the Bayit Yehudi said her agreement with Netanyahu alienates the party.

“A government with one of the major supporters of the Gaza disengagement, who is in favor of dividing Jerusalem, is not a right-wing government,” the party stated.
