Report: Likud asks allies to sign new loyalty pledge against Edelstein’s ouster

Likud faction chairman MK Miki Zohar is circulating a new “loyalty” document among members of the prime minister’s right-wing bloc, the Walla news site reports.

Benjamin Netanyahu’s allies are reportedly being asked to vow that any negotiations for a unity government will be halted if Blue and White appoints a Knesset speaker of its own to replace Likud’s Yuli Edelstein.
