United Torah Judaism has no particular allegiance to either prime ministerial candidate, MK Yaakov Litzman said Sunday.
During an interview with Channel Two, Litzman said that while his party’s preference is for Binyamin Netanyahu to remain prime minister, there is also the option of sitting in a government formed by Labor leader Yitzchak Herzog, Arutz Sheva reports.
According to Litzman, UTJ does not view itself as necessarily committed to becoming part of a right-wing government. Sitting with Herzog is a possibility, he notes.
Litzman said UTJ had not ruled any other party out, noting the party has already sat in a government with the left-wing, secular Meretz party. One glaring exception to that rule, however, is Yesh Atid under the leadership of former finance minister Yair Lapid. Litzman stressed emphatically during the interview that United Torah Judaism would never sit in a coalition with Lapid.
