There has been “a legal junta” that “hunts Netanyahu” made by people who wish to “appoint the Left [to leadership],” he alleged.
“There was a direct line for advice between us [Ben Gvir and Shaked] regarding the appointment of judges and other positions in the legal system,” Ben Gvir said at the conference.
Far-right leader says he was offered ministerial positions, jobs in the national institutions, and even the role of an Israeli ambassador.
Despite deep personal and ideological differences between them and high drama negotiations, the parties came together.
Itamar Ben Gvir, the head of the Otzma Yehudit party, expressed shock at the uproar, telling 103FM that he “doesn’t understand the assault on Rafi Peretz. What, have we turned into Iran?"
Education Minister Rafi Peretz, in an interview with Yediot Aharonot, additionally spoke of deporting children of illegal immigrants and limiting Palestinians to vote in local elections alone.
Netanyahu is facing criminal charges for alleged corruption and breach of trust.
The Zehut, Otzma Yehudit and Noam parties have been under pressure from Likud members and Chabad Rabbis to drop out of the race, so as to not lose thousands of potential votes.
"There are good Arabs," Ben-Gvir told the 33-member committee. "They’re not all terrorists. The problem is not with all Arabs but with those who are not loyal."
No compromises as yet from United Right on unity deal with Otzma with Thursday evening deadline looming
