Meretz leader Zehava Gal-On on Saturday called upon Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu not to approve the referendum bill, because it would raise questions about whether he honestly wants to advance the peace process and indicate that he lacks a mandate to commit to future evacuations of territories.
"Just a few months ago the nation chose its representatives in the government and the Knesset to run the country and make fateful decisions," Gal-On said. "[Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali] Bennett and Netanyahu are trying to change the rules of the game and shift responsibility to the nation."
