Quit political lollygagging and get to work, opposition MKs tell coalition

Opposition MKs are telling their counterparts in the ruling coalition to get to work on things that matter to people rather than campaigning for legislation to overhaul the country’s judiciary or other pet issues.

“The reform won’t be implemented since half the country — way more than half, surveys show up to 30 percent of Likud members — don’t want these reforms and so it won’t happen,” Yesh Atid MK Ram Ben Barak tells Army Radio. “They need to rein it in and start to manage their ministries and stop only dealing with creating a situation in which Israel is a dictatorship and their rule lasts forever.”

With the government announcing that a price cap on eggs is set to rise some 16 percent next month, Yisrael Beytenu MK Yulia Malinovsky tells the station that UTJ lawmaker and Finance Committee head Moshe Gafni should “deal with egg prices instead of with searching people’s bags when they come to hospitals,” a reference to a UTJ proposal to ban unleavened food from hospitals over Passover.
