Netanyahu Strikes Election Deal with Far-right Parties

Wednesday, 20 February 2019 11:38 AM

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has struck a preliminary election deal with two fringe religious-nationalist parties in a bid to unify his hard-line bloc ahead of April elections.

Netanyahu's Likud party announced Wednesday it would reserve the 28th spot on its parliamentary list for the Jewish Home party and grant it two Cabinet ministries in a future government if it merges with the Jewish Power party.

Jewish Power is comprised of hard-line religious nationalists who have cast themselves as successors to the banned Kahanist movement, which advocated forced removal of Palestinians from Israel.

Recent polls project Likud winning about 30 of parliament's 120 seats, while Jewish Home and Jewish Power may not have enough support to enter parliament on their own.
