Likud intends to continue this morning (Thursday) the contacts with the coalition parties with the aim of completing the coalition agreements today or early next week.

During the night, talks continued with the chairman of Otzma Yehudit Itamar Ben Gabir and the people of Torah Judaism, and progress was made in Ben Gabir's demand to receive a veto right in the Ministerial Committee for Legislation. Ben Gabir will serve as a substitute for the Ministerial Committee for Legislation and will receive the right to veto a limited amount of laws in a mechanism that has not yet been agreed upon.

According to Likud officials, progress has also been made with Agudat Israel, but there are still gaps in wording on certain issues with Degal Torah members, which they hope will be closed during the day. Legally, Prime Minister-designate Binyamin Netanyahu must present the agreements and bring them to the Knesset table within 24 hours at the latest Before the swearing in of the government, which he plans to present next Thursday.

The "Dari-Smotrich" law will be promoted today.

"The Deri-Smotrich Law" is a combination of two laws - the first one qualifies the appointment of Shas chairman Aryeh Deri as a minister, despite his criminal conviction.

The second regulates the appointment of Religious Zionist Chairman Bezalel Smotrich to the position of Minister in the Ministry of Defense with powers over the Civil Administration. Likud plans to bring it up in the plenum for discussion and voting for a second and third reading on Monday. Then, on Tuesday or Wednesday, the plan is to approve the "Ben Law Gabir", which will transfer expanded powers over the police to the designated Minister of National Security. The law arouses widespread opposition in the legal advice to the government and the police, who claim that the current version does not balance the powers of the minister and the independence of the police, and will cause politicization in the organization and administrative and authoritative chaos. Ben Gabir refuses to accept the amendments proposed by The ombudsman at this stage.

Knesset member Merav Ben Ari announced this morning that she submitted hundreds of reservations in order to comply with the guarantee of the law.

"Today at 6:45, 820 reservations were submitted to the Knesset only by the Yesh Atid party, which will be joined by hundreds more of my other members of the opposition," said Ben Ari.

"At 8:00 in the morning the discussion in the committee will begin - we will each reason for two minutes and then we will vote, the discussion will continue on Sunday, Monday and as long as we need to delay this bad law of the police order, until it reaches the plenary."

At the same time, two or three days before the inauguration, Netanyahu will begin the round of distributing cases to Likud members.

The prime minister-designate wants to postpone the meetings with Likud members as much as possible until the last minute, to minimize the possibility that disappointed Knesset members will make it difficult for the partners' laws to be approved in the plenum.
