Bennett threatens government unity over delay to Regulation Bill

Jewish Home leader Naftali Bennett threatens to break ranks with the coalition government until the passage of legislation that retroactively legalizes settlements and outposts built on privately owned Palestinian land.

The voting on the so-called Regulation Bill, which was drafted by a Jewish Home MK, was suspended earlier today due to opposition from Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon (Kulanu).

“I informed the cabinet that we will not cooperate with the coalition until the Regulation Bill is passed,” Bennett says, according to Army Radio. “If Kahlon does not accept coalition discipline, then neither will we.”
