Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar tears into Likud for the proposal it has submitted to lend its support to ensure that the Metro Law will pass.

The party will back the legislation essential to the country’s infrastructure if the coalition agrees to revoke the rebel status of ex-Yamina MK Amichai Chikli.

“Surrendering to blackmail in the Chikli case is a corrupt deal that is against the law and the decision of the Knesset committee that voted on the matter,” Sa’ar tweets.

“This ‘whitewashing’ will also be an encouragement to defect from parties the day after the election. The opposition has been campaigning for more defectors, and the coalition is unfortunately now giving it a stamp of approval. New Hope will oppose this,” he says.
