UTJ ‘may sit with Meretz but never Lapid’

United Torah Judaism head Yaacov Litzman says he would be willing to be in a coalition with Meretz, but never with Yesh Atid.

Speaking to Haaretz, Litzman also lamented the stigmatization of ultra-Orthodox parties by the media. “No media outlet, not radio nor television, ever asked me what I think about Bottle-gate, about the State Comptroller’s report, about housing – because they peg me as being part of a sector.”

“This,” Litzman continues, “is why I didn’t participate in the debate. My party is bigger than Meretz. Why do they ask Meretz every day but not us? I’m not against Meretz, we cooperated in the past, there’s no problem. Being in the media is getting an advertisement for your campaign… why does my party not deserve it?
