Lapid: If you vote for Netanyahu, you’ll get Ben Gvir as minister

Opposition leader Yair Lapid responds to the merger of two far-right parties, predicting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will appoint far-rightist Itamar Ben Gvir as a minister if elected.

“Whoever wants Ben Gvir to become a minister in the government should vote for Netanyahu. Whoever wants a sane government, Yesh Atid,” tweets Lapid.

Yamina leader Naftali Bennett, a former partner to Bezalel Smotrich whose party merged with Ben Gvir’s Otzma Yehudit, congratulates them on the alliance in an interview with Channel 13.
