Kahlon negotiating return to Likud fold, would stay on as finance minister


(Worthy News) - Following a dismal showing in the polls, Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon is negotiating a return to the Likud party.

The negotiations are at an advanced stage, with Kahlon’s Kulanu party to be united with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud and Kahlon retaining his position as finance minister, Ynet news reported.

Kahlon is expected to receive an additional cabinet portfolio as part of the agreement, that would see Likud rise to 39 seats in the 120-seat Knesset. This would be the largest number of seats for Likud since the 1988 elections, when it won 40. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]
