TV: Growing concern in change bloc over Ra’am’s demands

Channel 12 news reports leaders of the change bloc are becoming more concerned about Ra’am’s demands, 10 hours before Lapid’s mandate to form a coalition expires.

The network says there is growing opposition within Ra’am, an Islamist party, to supporting the bloc’s efforts to form a government unless the bloc agrees to various demands that the right wing of the potential coalition will find difficult to accept.
