UTJ head says in retrospect, maybe Likud should’ve replaced Netanyahu

United Torah Judaism party chief Moshe Gafni tells Kan Bet Radio that Benjamin Netanyahu stepping aside to let a different Likud candidate form a government “may have been the right thing to do.”

But he adds that he could not demand of “a party with 30 seats” to switch out its chosen leader and vows to remain loyal to Likud’s path, even if that means staying in the opposition.

“Likud decided what it decided,” he says.
