Israel Hayom – As coalition talks entered a third week on Sunday, tensions between Likud-Beytenu and Habayit Hayehudi continued to escalate, with no decision yet made on the latter’s entry into the coalition. A senior Likud-Beytenu official involved in the coalition talks attacked Habayit Hayehudi Chairman Naftali Bennett on Saturday, accusing him of reneging on his campaign promises.
“He is defrauding his voters. In aligning himself with [Yesh Atid leader] Yair Lapid, Bennett is actively preventing the establishment of a nationalist coalition,” the official said.
