Union of Right-wing Parties co-chairman Bezalel Smotrich said he would not accept the Construction portfolio he is expected to receive in coalition talks, during an interview with Kan Radio on Sunday morning.
Smotrich said he would demand either the Education Ministry or the Justice Ministry, which is likely to go to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's confident, outgoing Tourism Minister Yariv Levin.
"If [former Meretz leaders] Shulamit Aloni and Yossi Sarid could be education minister, then so can I," Smotrich said. "My views are much closer to the consensus."
