MK Sa'ar: Progress was made but we didn't deal with portfolios yet

Following coalition talks with Shas and Israel Beiteinu representatives on Thursday, MK Gideon Sa'ar, head of the Likud's negotiating team, said much progress was made in the meetings. "We had two long meetings. Significant progress was made in both and I'm optimistic about our ability to finish quickly," Sa'ar said immediately after the talks ended in Ramat Gan's Kfar Hamaccabia on Thursday evening. "There are still issues that have to be dealt with, we did not deal with portfolios yet," he added.
