The head of the Likud negotiating team Tourism Minister Yariv Levin praised the reaching of an overnight agreement that will enable the expected singing of a new coalition deal on Wednesday morning.

"Over the course of the night we succeeded in reaching the final agreements on issues that remained in dispute between Yisrael Beytenu and the Finance Ministry," he said. "This agreement will better the lives of all Israeli citizens, and I welcome that."

"Widening the government by adding Yisael Beytenu to a nationalist coalition is an important step that was necessary to guarantee the civility of the coalition and to continue work of the government according to its policies," Levin added.
