Bayit Yehudi: Gov't deal with Livni is 'traffic accident'

The Bayit Yehudi demanded Likud Beytenu change its coalition agreement with the Tzipi Livni Party, in negotiations on Wednesday that ended without any significant progress.
"The deal is a traffic accident," MK Uri Ariel, second on the Bayit Yehudi list and the party's chief negotiator, said of the coalition agreement with Livni, which would make her Justice Minister and responsible for negotiations with the Palestinians.
The party did not specify what they would like to change in the agreement with Livni, saying Likud Beytenu should tell them what they can offer, but they are not asking for Livni to be pushed out of the coalition.
Yesh Atid, which is coordinated with the Bayit Yehudi in coalition talks, plans to make similar demands to change the deal with Livni in negotiations that are set to continue on Thursday afternoon. Yesh Atid opposes the fact that Livni's party received two ministries, which means one for every three MKs, because the former party thinks the government should have no more than 18 ministers.
