Noam’s sole lawmaker, MK Avi Maoz, steps up his threats against the coalition, three weeks after quitting the government in protest over not receiving the powers promised to his tiny faction in his coalition agreement with Likud.
“This week I won’t vote with the coalition. I’ll vote my conscience,” Maoz tells reporters at the outset of his Knesset faction meeting.
“If the coalition agreement with me… even one line of it, is not respected, I will act from outside the coalition,” he says.
However, Maoz says he won’t act to topple the coalition.
“This government will not fall by my hand,” he says.
