Ben-Eliezer on Ben-Simon: 'Mandate belongs to Labor Party'

Labor MK Binyamin Ben-Eliezer on Tuesday announced that he has no intention of signing an approval allowing fellow Labor MK Daniel Ben-Simon's departure from the party to create a one-man faction outside of the governing coalition.
"I respect Daniel Ben-Simon and I have great appreciation for him, but I have not changed my opinion," he explained, adding that "the mandate belongs to the Labor Party alone; not to me or anyone else. I will not sign and Ben-Simon is aware of my opinion on the matter."
