Likud, Yisrael Beytenu reps meet

Representatives of Likud meet with representatives of Yisrael Beytenu in preliminary coalition talks in Jerusalem.

According to Ynet, Likud’s Ze’ev Elkin says: “These are two parties that know how to work together. It was a friendly meeting. Several issues were raised but we see eye to eye.”

Moshe Lion, who in 2013 was Likud and Israel Beytenu’s candidate for Jerusalem mayor, was one of the representatives for Beytenu at the talks.

“We stand together, you cannot separate the two parties,” he reportedly says.

Yisrael Beytenu wants to legislate a death penalty for terrorists. “It is hard to say whether this or that clause will be [in the coalition agreement],” says Elkin, emphasizing that “some issues necessitate examination and learning, including legal counsel.”
