The chairman of the Knesset’s Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee, MK Zvi Hauser (Derech Eretz faction), spoke with Golan Yokfaz and Anat Davidov on 103fm about his opposition to the dissolution of the unity government.
This is in light of the recent rumors about Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s attempts to lead to another election campaign, and in light of what Minister Miri Regev (Likud) said in an interview with ‘Meet the Press’.
MK Zvi Hauser claimed that his Derech Eretz party “has a responsibility, perhaps even a historical responsibility, for the formation of a unity government.” As early as March, there was an option to either form a minority government of 45 MKs with the support of the common outside which delusional ideas, or to form a unity government, we said no and no. Unity government is the only format; even before we understand the magnitude of the challenge facing Israel today. Known as the economic crisis and the health crisis. ”
He referred to the social, economic and health situation in Israel in these difficult days, and admitted: “I can not tell you that I am satisfied with what I see,” but on the other hand claimed that “this is a much better alternative than any other alternative. “The flu virus, also the virus of the collapse of households, and of the economy, and someone who thinks that an election virus or a narrow government virus can be added to it does not understand what he is talking about.”
Golan Yokfaz wondered whether they had approached the MK about the formation of an alternative government, and whether they had tried to negotiate with him. He replied: “There is talk all the time, especially in the media. Many talk to me and everyone hears the answer and analysis as I have given you here. People who think it’s time to dismantle the unity government are people who ‘fell on their heads’. We are dealing in 3 months with a script that science fiction describes as if there is a message that a meteor is going to crash on Earth and now the question is what are we doing. The only way to deal with the challenges facing the Israeli system is through unity. Not by attempt, not by crushing, it is against historical logic and I will do everything I can to prevent it. ”
“I am in favor of the overcoming clause”
Anat Davidov noted to the chairman of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee that in the outbreak of the first wave of the Corona virus in Israel, Prime Minister Netanyahu managed the crisis in a transitional government, and succeeded; While in the second wave, in the unity government, the crisis management seems to have failed, and wondered: ‘Where are you in the government’? MK Handel replied: “First of all at the operational level, Minister Handel is a communications minister who is leading a revolution that corresponds with reality and says ‘Gentlemen, communication infrastructure today is more important than any other infrastructure’, any other infrastructure regarding the future of the economy, labor market, we are in Back and need to be upgraded. I’m on the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee. I am analyzing things about what is historically right to do in the State of Israel or what is the way of the State of Israel at this time. ”
In his opinion, “The main factor now is to focus on one thing, to do everything to prevent the Israeli ship from crashing on the rocks. Last week I tabled a bill that would first give the Knesset and the coalition more time to stand. The Knesset, if it does not reach an agreement on August 25 It’s dispersing. This date, we need to move it. I also expect the Likud and all the coalition factions to recover, first of all to postpone this thing, to focus on what is necessary. This event is not an ordinary business move, it is a crisis that Israel has never dealt with. Aside from the unimportant things, we are all responsible for the future of our children. ”
Anat Davidov wondered how the members of Derech Eretz would vote if the proposal for the overcoming clause was put to the vote, to which he replied: “As a rule, I am in favor of the overcoming clause as part of a comprehensive arrangement in the Basic Law.” And this is not the time. The story of an overcoming clause cannot be played with casually. One has to understand its meanings and explain an explanation that will be true over time. Anything that will shake the stability of the government we will be against Home and avoid a crisis in the winter. ”
