Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu committed on Tuesday evening during a Likud-Beytenu campaign rally to lower the housing prices if he is re-elected.

In order to achieve that, Likud-Beytenu aims to return the Ministry of Housing and Construction and the Israel Land Administration back to the party's hands, Netanyahu said.

Netanyahu added that The Ministry of Housing and Construction, that is currently run by Ariel Attias (Shas), "should not be in one sector's hands, it should serve all of the citizens of Israel."
