Former Yamina MK Amichai Chikli who quit the coalition more than a year ago and recently officially joined the Likud, claims a deal to be placed 14th on Benjamin Netanyahu’s party’s slate ahead of the upcoming elections was only made several weeks ago.

“The [deal to be placed on the list] wasn’t closed a year ago… it was closed a few weeks ago,” he tells Channel 12 news.
