Ra’am denies MK will go rogue and oppose Bennett-Lapid government
Ra’am denies a member of the Islamist party will oppose the establishment of a government led by Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid, as reported by Channel 12.
In a statement put out by Ra’am party spokespeople in response to the reports, MK Mazen Ghanaim is quoted denying the accusations.
“I am behind every decision taken by Ra’am… for those looking for a scoop or political gain, I say: not on Mazen Ghanaim’s shoulders,” Ghanaim says.
The prospective coalition needs all four Ra’am members to be on board to garner the majority vote needed to form a government.
