Likud supporters dissatisfied with coalition agreements with haredi party, poll finds

A poll conducted for the Hiddush religious pluralism lobbying group has showed Likud voters to be displeased with the coalition agreement the party signed with the ultra-Orthodox political party United Torah Judaism.

The poll was conducted on a sample of 500 people on May 4, 2015 after the agreement with UTJ was signed and made public.

The deal between UTJ and Likud included promises to make significant budgetary increases for haredi yeshivas; remove criteria that made qualification for housing aid dependent on being employed (or seeking employment); scrap the obligatory requirement for haredi yeshiva students to serve in the IDF and repeal a law designed to liberalize and increase access to conversion courts.
