New Hope member vows none of party’s MKs will join Netanyahu government

New Hope candidate and former Likud MK Ze’ev Elkin reiterates his party’s pledge not to join a government headed by Benjamin Netanyahu, “no matter what job we are offered,” and says no member of Gideon Sa’ar’s party will defect to Netanyahu’s bloc.

“If Netanyahu forms a government, we will serve the public from the opposition,” Elkin tweets.

He also says New Hope won’t be in a coalition propped up by the predominantly Arab Joint List party — notably not ruling out Ra’am.

“We will do everything to form a government of change, and no ego will stand in the way,” he adds.
