Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked on Sunday referred to her party's request to place the defensive portfolio in the hands of Minister Naphtali Bennet as a prerequisite for the continued existence of the government.
"At this stage, the government is no longer a right-wing government, unfortunately," said Shaked, explaining that "What had to be done (appointing judges, changing the approach to state positions in the Supreme Court, Ariel University, dismantling the Council for Higher Education and more) – we have already done. "
On the other hand, he continued: "What is still to be done (the overthrow clause, the removal of the invaders, the evacuation of Khan al-Ahmar, the deterrence of deterring terrorist funds) – is already clear that it will not be done under this government. "
"The only justification for the continued existence of the government until November 2019 is that Bennett will revolutionize security, restore Israel's deterrence that has been lost under Liberman over the past two years and help escape the deep crisis This government is called the "right", but in practice it fulfills the policy of the left, "Shaked said.
"The public is bored with the right to vote and it remains and the continuation of a faltering left-wing government will jeopardize proper sovereignty. So we have to go to elections as soon as possible in order to form a new government headed by Netanyahu with the Jewish house the powerful party to its right, so that we can finally vote properly and be right.
