Yesh Atid: Universal service 'red line' for joining gov't

January 16, 2013 22:13

Ofer Shelah, the sixth-placed candidate on Yesh Atid’s electoral list, insisted on Wednesday that the party’s proposals for drafting haredi men into national service constitute “a red line” for joining a coalition government.

Speaking to The Jerusalem Post, Shelah said that it was of vital importance that a situation be reached in which all 18 year old males are drafted into national service programs, and stressed that if Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu wanted Yesh Atid to join a governing coalition, the party’s plan for universal national service would need to be implemented.
