Edelstein expects coalition to expand after budget is passed

The coalition cannot last long with only 61 members, Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein warned Monday, in a briefing with Knesset reporters Monday.

"I think that after we pass the budget [in November] we will see changes in the coalition’s makeup," he said, but was unwilling to speculate as to who would join. "I don’t think we’re expected to go to an election, because I don’t think the opposition or coalition want it."

Edelstein expected the budget to be "problematic," saying too many promises were made in coalition talks and not all of them can realistically be fulfilled.
