Minister of Environmental Protection Gilad Erdan said on Thursday that if the Histadrut joins the housing protests it will not shorten Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's term, Israel Radio reported.

Histadrut Chairman Ofer "Eini's participation in the protest will not shorten the government's tenure," said Erdan, according to the report.

The environmental protection minister said that although the housing protesters do not know what they want from the government, the Histadrut can elucidate its specific goals.

Minister Erdan was convinced that Eini's decision to bring the weight of the Histadrut behind the housing protesters is unlikely to topple the government, even if the Histadrut chairman joins the protesters in their tents.
