Kan: A state of tension within the Israeli government due to the demands of the United Arab List

Jerusalem24 – The Israeli channel, Reshet Kan, reported last night, Wednesday, that there is a state of tension within the Israeli government coalition, in light of the demand of the United Arab List to implement the signed agreement before entering the government.

The channel indicated that the United List party, led by Mansour Abbas, is demanding that the government recognize three unrecognized villages in the Negev, before the general budget is finally passed before the Knesset; after it was passed only in the first reading.

According to the agreement signed for the list to enter the government, those villages will be recognized within 45 days of the government taking the constitutional oath. 100 days after the formation of the government, that is yet to happen.

The channel indicated that there is a state of anger within the United list due to the government’s ignoring its demands.

Later, the united list denied the existence of any differences, and that it links the recognition of the three villages as a condition to support the budget, noting that there is no discussion in the government regarding these villages.

“The Negev was and will remain one of the most important issues that the party deals with day and night,” the list said.

The list emphasized that the dialogue within the coalition regarding its demands is taking place in a direct and constructive manner and not through the media.
