Blue and White minister: If PM won’t honor coalition deal on budget, who can ensure he won’t break other promises?

Blue and White Minister Michael Biton explains the party’s insistence on the passage of a budget running through 2021, rather than one that only covers the rest of the year as advocated by Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Likud.

In an interview with Army Radio, Biton notes Netanyahu promised to hand over the premiership to Gantz in November 2021 as part of the coalition deal between Blue & White and Likud. If Netanyahu won’t honor the coalition agreement’s stipulation that a budget covering all of next year be passed, who can guarantee he’ll adhere to other commitments he made, Biton asks.
