Hotovely: PM risks turning Likud into dictatorship

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu must take the results of the Likud’s democratic primary into consideration when forming a coalition, MK Tzipi Hotovely (Likud Beytenu) said in an exclusive interview with The Jerusalem Post Wednesday.
“The prime minister wants to respect veterans in the party and feels he can’t tell a minister that now he’ll be a regular MK. It’s a twisted method that could turn into a dictatorship,” Hotovely explained, following indications that Netanyahu will not appoint any new ministers.
Hotovely unseated outgoing Culture and Sport Minister Limor Livnat as the “first lady of the Likud” in the party’s November primary, reaching the 10th spot in the Likud and the 15th in the combined Likud Beytenu list.
