Deputy Health Minister Yaakov Litzman (UTJ) on Tuesday said that he would not sit together in a coalition with MK Yair Lapid.
On Tuesday, Israel’s Maariv newspaper reported that varous UTJ sources had said that if Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu cannot form a coalition, they would be willing to join a coalition led by the Blue and White’s Benny Gantz and Lapid – as long as they cancel the rotation planned for the role of prime minister.
On Tuesday morning Litzman responded to Maariv’s article: “I don’t dream of sitting in a coalition which has Lapid in it… I’m not a destroyer of Israel. Someone who can embarrass and shame me is not someone I’m friends with and I won’t sit with him.”
“I absolutely support Netanyahu and may he come out innocent.”
