UTJ lawmaker: If Netanyahu lacks majority, ‘we’ll weigh’ options before going to 5th elections

MK Moshe Gafni says there is “no meaning” to the pledge his United Torah Judaism party signed vowing to only back Prime Minister Netanyahu to form a government after the elections.

Gafni, a key partner of Netanyahu’s, tells Channel 12 news that UTJ is allied with the premier’s Likud party because it includes “traditional” voters, not because it is right-wing.

He says if Netanyahu’s right-wing religious bloc falls short of a majority, “we’ll weigh [what to do] before going to fifth elections.”
