Likud MKs Concerned About Cabinet Arrangement
Times of Israel – As the incoming coalition parties prepared to finalize terms on Wednesday night, a new battle was gathering pace — among Likud would-be ministers, for a seat at the cabinet table.
The new government is set to comprise 22 ministers, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Inside Yesh Atid, Jewish Home and Hatnua, the likely partners to Netanyahu’s Likud-Beytenu in the 68-strong emerging coalition, most of the ministerial appointments are already clear. Not so in Likud, where too many outgoing ministers and would-be incoming ministers are seeking far too few jobs.
