The Likud Party must remove Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu so that it can ensure Israel has a stable right-wing government, Yesha Council head David Elhayani told The Jerusalem Post Tuesday. “Bibi should step down, and the Likud should replace him,” he said. That would be the best option to end the political stalemate, which might send Israel to its fifth election within three years, he added. New Hope Party head Gideon Sa’ar and Religious Zionist Party leader Bezalel Smotrich are under pressure to join a Netanyahu-led coalition or risk imperiling a right-wing government. Elhayani, who broke with Netanyahu when he failed to make good on his pledge to annex West Bank settlements, said it was misguided to shine the spotlight on Sa’ar or Smotrich when the fate of a right-wing government rests solely with the Likud. The path to a 65-member right-wing coalition is with Likud’s 30 mandates, Shas’s nine, United Torah Judaism’s seven, Yamina’s seven, New Hope’s six and Religious Zionist Party’s six, he said.
