Steinitz: Bayit Yehudi is de facto boycotting haredim

There is a blatant boycott of an entire public underway, Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz (Likud) said Sunday in reference to Yesh Atid's refusal to sit in a coalition with the haredi parties.
Steinitz said that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu correctly disagrees with the "boycott" and that he himself "does not understand these games."
The finance minister echoed comments made by head of the Likud Beytenu negotiating team Attorney David Shimron in recent days that by enforcing its pact with Yesh Atid not to join the coalition without one another, Bayit Yehudi is de facto boycotting the haredim as well.
