TV: Ra’am says change bloc is refusing demands Netanyahu agreed to

Unnamed officials in the Ra’am party, whose votes are vital to enable the change bloc to form a government, tell Channel 12 the leaders of the change bloc are refusing demands Prime Minister Netanyahu agreed to, and that if things continue in this manner a government will not be formed.

The network says Netanyahu agreed this morning to annul the so-called Kaminitz law, penalizing illegal building, if the party opposes the change government.

However, it is not clear he could follow through since he currently has no potential coalition.

The reported complications with Ra’am exacerbate an existing obstacle for the change bloc posed by Yamina’s Ayelet Shaked’s demand for a place on the committee that selects judges, instead of Labor’s Merav Michaeli.
