PM says ultra-Orthodox draft, ‘Gideon Sa’ar’ bills won’t pass before elections

Netanyahu says the ultra-Orthodox conscription bill will not pass before the April elections as it needs support of the opposition and Lapid “has acted like a contortionist” in changing his position on the law from support to opposition.

He also says the so-called Gideon Sa’ar bill, which would force the president to entrust forming a coalition only to the head of a party, does not need to be advanced anymore as the president has indicated he does not plan to break tradition.
