Blue and White: Edelstein will go down as a ‘disgrace’ if no vote on new Knesset speaker

The Blue and White party issues a response to Knesset speaker Yuli Edelstein’s response to the High Court of Justice that he will not agree to the justices’ position on holding a vote for a new Knesset speaker by Wednesday.

“Yuli, don’t dig in. The Knesset can choose a Knesset speaker, otherwise you’ll forever be remembered in disgrace as someone who was a partner to Netanyahu’s mission to destroy democracy,” the party says in a statement.

Blue and White and other parties that together have 61 seats in the Knesset are seeking to name a new Knesset speaker, but Edelstein has blocked a vote, arguing, among other reasons, that it would blow up talks between Likud and Blue and White on a unity government.
