The party «Our home Israel» rejected a compromise on the question of law on appeal, made yesterday during a meeting of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and leader of the «yaadut Torah» Jacob Litman.
A source close to the head of the party of Avigdor Lieberman told the correspondent NEWSru.co.il that the position of the NDI has remained the same: the party will support a bill that will be developed by the Commission of the Ministry of defence.
The party of Lieberman noted that the entire faction, including the Minister of aliyah and integration of the Landwehr, will vote against.
If the law is approved in inter-Ministerial Commission on legislation meeting which will begin on Monday at 9:00, NDI intends to appeal, after which would require the convening of a meeting of the government on the bill.
Surrounded by Lieberman expressed doubt that the party’s position may change.
The Minister of defence does not comment on this issue, and is likely to announce its position at the faction meeting at 14:30.
Note that in the leadership of the coalition are interested to submit a bill to a vote in a preliminary reading today.
Earlier it was reported that on the evening of March 11, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Deputy Minister of health Yaakov Litzman. The meeting was devoted to the law on conscription. At the end of this meeting, from the office of Litzman told reporters that the negotiations will continue after the content of the conversation will be informed by the members of the Council of Torah scholars and will receive their approval. In the Likud the results of the talks took a more optimistic, arguing that religious parties can come to an agreement. The media on the eve noted that the fate of the coalition is dependent on Avigdor Lieberman.
According to the agreement reached Netanyahu and Litzman, the law on conscription, proposed by Deputy Yoav Ben at the LRC, March 12, will be presented for discussion at the inter-Ministerial Commission on legislation, and then transferred to the discussion of the Knesset in a preliminary reading. The government, for its part, must guarantee that the law will be approved during the summer session. If the agreement approves Avigdor Lieberman, it will vote on the budget in 2019.
Earlier, Avigdor Lieberman categorically refused to support any bill which is not developed by the created Commission under the Ministry of defence.
Netanyahu was invited Jacob of Licman to meet after the Council of Torah scholars of the party «Agudat Israel», a member of the block «yaadut-Tora», rejected a compromise version of the law on conscription, developed by the Minister of justice Ayelet shaked and former construction Minister Ariel Aliacom. The spiritual leaders of «Agudat Israel» ordered deputies to seek the approval of the bill that will be acceptable to them before the adoption of the budget by 2019.
