Yamina party: coalition gov't will not prevent Netanyahu from running for Knesset

The Yamina party denies a report by Channel 12 news that the emerging government’s guidelines or coalition deals will prevent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from running in Knesset elections in the future.

“This is not and won’t be any agreement on the matter of preventing running for the Knesset,” Yamina says. “This is a proposal that was made, wasn’t agreed on, and won’t happen. The only thing that was agreed is capping a prime minister’s tenure at eight years or two terms.”

The party says other parts of the network’s report are inaccurate and some are only relevant to earlier drafts. It says the coalition deals are still undergoing constant changes and will be published once their content is finalized.
