Shaked says Netanyahu-Jewish Home deal ‘good for the right’

Justice minister Ayelet Shaked welcomes Netanyahu’s preliminary election deal with the Jewish Home that would see it merge with an extremist faction as “good for the right.”

“If you look at it what’s best for the right-wing bloc, the merger is what’s best,” she says. “I am far from their views, but a parliament needs to know how to contain extremes.”

Earlier, the Likud party announced it would reserve the 28th spot on its parliamentary list for the Jewish Home party and grant it two Cabinet ministries in a future government if it merges with the extremist Otzma Yehudit party.
