Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz (Meretz) said on Sunday that his party and the government are making every effort to ensure that the coalition continues to exist due to a fear of a fifth election that will bring Benjamin Netanyahu, Bezalel Smotrich and Itamar Ben Gvir to power. In an interview with the Arabic language Nasradio, Horowitz said nothing good for the country would come from an election and stated that he did not intend to give up on trying to keep the coalition and the government going.

Referring MK Ghaida Rinawie Zoabi of his party, who does not consider herself obliged to vote with the coalition, Horowitz said (without mentioning her name) that Zoabi was not elected on a personal basis but within the party framework, and as such, if she has difficulty voting with the coalition she should resign.
