Likud MK Ophir Akunis slammed Bayit Yehudi on Thursday for breaking the "historic alliance" between the national religious party (NRP) and Likud, Israel Radio reported.

"Bayit Yehudi is bluntly breaking its explicit promise to join the government," Akunis said, citing the faction's campaign slogan that asserted Bayit Yehudi and Likud are stronger together.

"Myself and my friends at the Likud are getting hundreds of phone calls [of citizens] asking 'what is going on? Is it possible that the NRP, the Bayit Yehudi, is the one that will prevent the formation of a Likud government?'" he told Israel Radio.
