Netanyahu Said Considering Firing Bennett And Shaked At The Request Of HaBayit Yehudi


Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is considering firing Education Minister Naftali Bennett and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked after the two left HaBayit Yehudi to start a breakaway party, Hadashot news reported Saturday.

According to the report, HaBayit Yehudi MKs asked Netanyahu to remove Bennett and Shaked from their ministerial posts before the April elections, because the justice and education portfolios belong to the HaBayit Yehudi party under the current coalition agreement.

Netanyahu is mulling the request, the report said, but is concerned that firing Bennett and Shaked would turn the two into “martyrs.”
