UTJ chairman MK Moshe Gafni tells Bennett ‘no thanks’ in response to Yamina leader’s offer to join ‘broad emergency government’
The UTJ leader said his party was “ideological” and could not be bought by various promises and deals, and added that he would “flourish” in opposition.
"A big part of the public is strict with not using water that comes from the Kinneret during Passover... as is it exposed and could contain hametz," MK Moshe Gafni said.
Movers and shakers in Israeli society
Under the deal, Gafni will continue to fill the powerful position of Knesset finance committee chairman and Litzman will receive a ministerial portfolio.
MK Moshe Gafni also celebrated his party's success at preventing the amendment of a basic law that is intended to ensure equality and prohibit discrimination.
Chairman of the Israel Securities Authority, Anat Guetta, called the decision "a simple revision that generates a significant change."
UTJ Mk Moshe Gafni's support for haredi schools with more secular studies than required is nothing short of a revolution.
