Vice Minister of Health MK Yaakov Litzman (United Torah Judaism) made it clear Monday that he will not be in a joint coalition with the former chief of staff Benny Gantz and Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid.
"I will not be in a joint government of Gantz and Lapid and I say that unequivocally," Litzman said at the 16th Conference in Jerusalem.
Litzman also discussed the idea of an alliance between United Torah Judaism and Shas, who came off the agenda after Shas chairman Aryeh Deri announced that the merger of the two lists had been ruled out.
"The truth is we did a union with Degel Hatorah and that's a great union, maybe they (Shas) do not want to join us, and I can not explain them." When the idea came up, I asked my rabbi & # 39; s and came back with a positive answer, so it did not come from our side, "he said.
When asked who he would recommend to the Prime Minister after the election, the Deputy Minister of Health said: "The Prime Minister will continue to serve, I do not understand how it works … do they want us to comply with the law or not? Then the Prime Minister can even serve after an indictment. We are not even there yet. & # 39;
Litzman criticized Benny Gantz but distinguished him from Lapid. "I do not like much of what he says, but that's what politicians are talking about before the election, but Lapid has hurt and plundered the Harei public during his tenure as minister of finance."
