Haredi lawmakers could stage walkout during vote on coalition — report

Haredi lawmakers intend to make the new government’s swearing-in a stormy one, Channel 12 reports.

MKs are considering staging a walkout during the vote and/or heckling speakers from the prospective coalition as they seek to paint the government as illegitimate over what they claim are its plans to change the religious status quo in the country.
