Netanyahu won’t punish backers of new broadcasting entity, associates say

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will not seek revenge against the heads of parties in his coalition who oppose his initiative to halt the formation of the new Israel Broadcasting Corporation, sources close to Netanyahu said Saturday night.

Netanyahu will convene the heads of the six parties in his coalition Sunday to discuss coalition chairman David Bitan’s bill that would close down the IBC, which is set to replace the current Israel Broadcasting Authority. He intends to push them to support the bill.
