Yisrael Beytenu MK Yulia Malinovsky attacks her fellow coalition members for not having “discipline,” a day after the Metro Law that her party had committed to push through before the Knesset disperses failed to reach an agreement between coalition and opposition members.

“Whoever wants to be in a coalition needs to learn discipline. That’s the takeaway we all need to learn here,” Malinovsky says.

In order to secure the opposition’s backing for the bill, coalition parties were asked to compromise on the upcoming election date, and allow a reversal of rebel Yamina MK Amichai Chikli’s ouster from the party. But some coalition parties refused.

Yisrael Beytenu said that in response, it would refuse to pull numerous reservations it filed against the dispersal bill.
