In a public political spat on Monday, Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar and Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked traded initial barbs in what will surely become a fierce battle for a significant portion of the right-wing electorate. New Hope leader Sa’ar claimed that Yamina head Shaked would not hesitate to take her party into a government headed by Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu should the opportunity arise after the upcoming elections.

“Everyone who votes for Ayelet Shaked knows that she will go with Netanyahu,” Sa’ar told Army Radio. “Even before the dissolution of the Knesset [last week], she worked to form [an alternate] government headed by him.” Shaked hit back on Twitter saying she “admitted to having made ‘superhuman efforts’ to prevent going to elections,” and described her actions as “the responsible thing to do” for the country. And the new Yamina leader in turn accused Sa’ar of negotiating with Netanyahu in a similar manner.
