Netanyahu’s new government to tackle authorizing illegal settler construction

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s new government is expected to formulate within the next three months a plan to legalize unauthorized West Bank settler construction.

Netanyahu is expected to tackle the issue at the request of the Bayit Yehudi Party, which was the last of the Likud’s four coalition partners to finalize a deal to enter the government.

The coalition deal between Bayit Yehudi and the Likud itself has not been published. But based on unofficial copies of the document, including portions published by Army Radio, Bayit Yehudi made the creation of such a plan one of its coalition demands.
