Likud MK Ze'ev Elkin criticized Bayit Yehudi chief Naftali Bennett on Monday after the economy minister threatened to end negotiations if Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu grants control of the Religious Affairs Ministry to the Sephardi ultra-Orthodox movement Shas.

Speaking to Army Radio, Elkin said that the ruling party will not be cowed by threats.

"Every party received offers that answer to their needs, including Bayit Yehudi," said Elkin, who also serves as party whip.
