TV: Elkin says Ra’am’s demands are ‘impossible, we won’t agree to them’

New Hope’s Ze’ev Elkin has told Likud MKs that Ra’am’s demands on okaying illegal construction in the Arab sector “are impossible for me and for [Ayelet] Shaked. We will not agree to them under any circumstances,” Kan news reports.

Elkin, a top confidant of New Hope leader Gideon Sa’ar, is one of the leading negotiators in the effort to cobble together a so-called change government.
