Bennett mulls giving up Knesset seat

Just two years after he entered the Knesset with great fanfare, Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett is considering quitting the parliament as early as Wednesday, sources in the party said Monday.

Bennett was quoted saying in closed conversations that if the Knesset passes the so-called mini-Norwegian law, he would resign from the parliament in favor of the next name on the Bayit Yehudi list, former MK Shuli Moalem-Refaeli.

The bill would enable a minister or deputy minister from each coalition party except the Likud to quit the Knesset, but return if they leave the cabinet.
