Coalition chairman Ze'ev Elkin (Likud) on Wednesday sent a letter to Beit El mayor Moshe Rosenbaum saying Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will allow a vote on the "regulatory law" proposed by MK Yaakov Katz if an administrative solution is not found.I think Netanyahu had better hurry up on his own part and cooperate more willingly with the coalition for Ulpana, if he wants to make a good impression here.
Elkin wrote, "The coalition leadership today met and decided, in light of the agreements with the prime minister, to enforce party discipline and reject ministers voting their own conscience on the regulatory law for two weeks.
"According to the agreement, the coalition is allowing two weeks for the Prime Minister to find a solution for the Givat Ulpana neighborhood without the need for legislation. If no such solution is found within a fortnight, coalition members will be granted the freedom to vote according to their conscience when the bill is reintroduced in two weeks time.
“If a solution is not found within two weeks, the Prime Minister does not reject a legislative solution.
"Meanwhile, the government today "froze" all the preparations for the destruction of the neighborhood.
"This prevents the government from being 'hijacked,' and stops the destruction of the neighborhood, so that should the matter be brought to a vote, the legislative process can run its course," Elkin concluded.
