The Bayit Yehudi party may be wondering if the coalition agreements it signed are worth the paper they’re written on.
Last week, Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein ruled that a coalition agreement between the Likud and Bayit Yehudi, which increased the budget to the Settlement Division is not valid and therefore won’t be implemented.
This week, Defense Minister Moshe Yaalon (Likud) said that he refuses to transfer control of the Civil Administration over to Deputy Minister Eli Ben-Dahan.
According to the coalition agreements, the Civil Administration is supposed to be under Ben-Dahan’s control.
The Civil Administration controls and coordinates security, construction and infrastructure in Area C of Judea and Samaria, specifically affecting Jewish and Arab communities there, as well as interfacing with the Palestinian Authority.
Instead, Yaalon said he wants Ben-Dahan to deal with Reservists and the Home Front.
A Bayit Yehudi party source very matter-of-factly told JewishPress.com, “We expect Likud to live up to the coalition agreement that was signed.”
He didn’t add any threats or warnings to his statement.
But what will Naftali Bennett do to enforce it?
