Officials in the Joint List opposition party have reportedly told Foreign Minister Yair Lapid that they don’t want to see the government brought down and would consider voting in favor of its new budget proposal. “We do not want to bring down this government just so [former prime minister Benjamin] Netanyahu can return to power with a 65-MK [right-wing] government, so there’s a conversation to be had regarding the budget,” was the message passed to Lapid in recent days, according to a Thursday report on the Kan public broadcaster. To the Joint List, a right-wing Netanyahu government would be much worse than the current coalition, which is led by hardline Prime Minister Naftali Bennett but also includes centrist and left-wing parties.
