UTJ party chief said refusing to immediately say it’ll back Netanyahu as PM

Prime Minister Netanyahu has asked the United Torah Judaism party to publicly say it will recommend that he form the next government, but, as of now, UTJ leader Moshe Gafni is refusing and has asked for more time, according to the Kan public broadcaster.

The Degel Hatorah faction of the ultra-Orthodox party will convene tomorrow to think the matter through, the report says.

The second Haredi party, Shas, has already pledged its support for Netanyahu.
