Likud officials: If High Court meddles with deal, we’ll go to 4th elections

Senior officials from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party on Friday warned that if the High Court intervenes next week over the coalition deal signed by Netanyahu and Blue and White party chief Benny Gantz, Israel would be dragged into a fourth round of elections.

The officials told Channel 12 news that, because the agreement is so complex and delicate, even a small intervention would throw it out of balance and end the precarious unity agreement.

Blue and White party representatives acknowledged that Likud has the ability to dismantle the government and bring about elections, the report said.
