Netanyahu lays down own terms for Bayit Yehudi coalition agreement

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu agreed Wednesday to appoint Bayit Yehudi MK Ayelet Shaked as justice minister, delivering him the party’s eight seats crucial to forming a government, but insisted that her powers be curtailed.

Netanyahu is willing to agree to Shaked’s appointment, on condition that she does not head the committee overseeing the nomination of new judges, and does not have the authority to appoint rabbinical judges, two roles traditionally tasked to the justice minister.
