Deri, Smotrich and Gafni refusing to give rotation to Bennett

Channel 12 News commentator Amit Segal: Even if Netanyahu and Bennett go together, Smotrich vehemently refuses to go to a government that relies on Ra’am.

Aryeh Deri, Moshe Gafni and Bezalel Smotrich, the leaders of the parties in the bloc with supports Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, are not prepared that in the negotiations on the formation of a government, Netanyahu will propose to Yamina chairman, Naftali Bennett, a rotation in the role of Prime Minister, Channel 12 News reported on Sunday.

Deri, Gafni and Smotrich argue that it is inconceivable to give Bennett a rotation – when they have more power than he does or the same power as he does.

Channel 12 News political commentator Amit Segal said, “Even if Netanyahu and Bennett go together definitively, the problem is Smotrich, who vehemently refuses to go to a government that relies on the votes of Ra’am – so in such a situation, Netanyahu cannot form a government – and the dates on which the mandate to form a government is still in his hands are running out without any significant progress on the horizon.”
