MK Levy-Abecasis: Netanyahu is punishing me for not joining Likud

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is blocking Yisrael Beytenu MK Orly Levy-Abecasis from taking on a significant position at the Knesset, the lawmaker claimed Sunday.

Levy-Abecasis cited a report in Yediot Aharonot that Kulanu leader Moshe Kahlon was willing to give up the Knesset Labor, Welfare and Health Committee and have her be its chairwoman so that Yisrael Beytenu will join the coalition, but Netanyahu refused.

Kulanu denied the report and Likud declined to comment on it or Levy-Abecasis’ accusation.
