The opposition announced: In this law we will vote together with the coalition | Israel today


MK Bezalel Smutrich sent the letter, which was also signed by opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu, with a commitment to support the GSS Local Law Law: "We will even reject the no-confidence motions for next week."

 A rare spectacle in the Knesset due to the outbreak of the Omicron variant: The chairman of Religious Zionism, MK Bezalel Smutritz, announced today (Monday) that the opposition will support the bill for GSS localities approved by the government.

The letter is also signed by Opposition Speaker Benjamin Netanyahu, Torah Judaism MKs Moshe Gafni and Yaakov Litzman and Shas Chairman Aryeh Deri.

In the struggle in Corona there is no coalition and no opposition.

We have now informed the coalition management that we will allow the vote on the GSS 'positions today and we will vote in favor of it, and we will even reject the no-confidence motions for next week. Saving lives first.

In a tweet on Twitter, Smutrich wrote: "In the fight against Corona, there is no coalition and no opposition.

Saving lives first and foremost. "

The letter reads, among other things: "Of course, the minimum requirement is that the entire coalition will also support the bill. Therefore, we ask you to commit that for the purpose of compliance, a coalition discipline will be imposed that will oblige all coalition members to support the bill. Even today, there is very broad support in the Knesset. "

Last night, the government approved the GSS 'location after a tense meeting during which there was also a confrontation between Minister Eli Avidar (who is not an MK), who strongly opposed the move, and Prime Minister Naftali Bennett.

Ministers Issawi Frij and Karin Elharar abstained.
