The Times of Israel says
that the unwisely etched out deal with Tzipi Livni's party - giving her the justice ministry and main control of negotiations with the PLO - may be altered to satisfy the other parties:
The Likud-Beytenu faction may look to amend its agreement with the Hatnua Party in a bid to bring Jewish Home and Yesh Atid into the coalition.
Hatnua, headed by Tzipi Livni, became the only party to join Prime Minister Benjamin Netanayhu’s nascent government, doing so on the condition that it receive two ministries and that Livni, a former foreign minister, be given the reins of negotiations with Palestinians.
However, Netanyahu may revoke some of those agreements, Maariv reported Friday, in the hope of wooing the nationalist-religious Jewish Home and the centrist Yesh Atid into the coalition.
Both parties, which have partnered up in coalition talks, have expressed reservations about the deal Netanyahu made with Livni, specifically her place at the head of negotiations with Palestinians, according to the report, which cites unnamed senior Likud sources.
Giving her the justice ministry was a very poor step, ditto the reins of negotiations with a hostile entity, and it should be changed. In the end, if she doesn't want to join, then I could honestly not care less. She was one of the worst modern day politicians ever to tarnish this country, and we could do better without her as part of a government.
