Likud MK David Bitan says that Religious Zionism chief Bezalel Smotrich will continue to be a headache for the likely incoming government.

“I know Smotrich. It won’t end just with the coalition negotiations,” Bitan tells Kan public radio amid ongoing standoffs between Likud and Religious Zionism over Smotrich’s future ministerial position.

“This government will have problems all week long with all sorts of legislation and demands from [the party’s] MKs and ministers,” Bitan adds.

The Likud MK says that a right-wing government will definitely be formed, but “we just don’t know how it will look. Since there is no alternative, we’re giving away almost everything and not getting anything — Likud is losing,” he adds, referring to the allocation of ministerial jobs.
