Leader of Hasidic political faction reiterates backing for Netanyahu

Housing Minister Yaakov Litzman of United Torah Judaism reiterates his support for Prime Minister Netanyahu, after two members of his Hasidic Agudath Israel sub-faction call on the premier to let another right-wing MK serve first as prime minister for 18 months.

“Agudath Israel is unified in its support of Benjamin Netanyahu throughout all recent election campaigns,” Litzman says in a statement.

He also stresses any decision will be made by Agudath Israel’s Council of Torah Sages.
