Rebellion on Right over lack of Jerusalem construction leads to coalition loss

A Yesh Atid bill passed in a preliminary vote Wednesday, after two Bayit Yehudi MKs were absent in protest over a lack of construction in Jerusalem.

The rebellion in the coalition was coordinated with Bayit Yehudi chairman Education Minister Naftali Bennett.

A bill by former welfare minister MK Meir Cohen (Yesh Atid) limiting the amount of cases a social worker can take on to 60 passed a preliminary reading 44-42, with Bayit Yehudi MKs Shuli Muallem-Refaeli and Bezalel Smotrich leaving the plenum ahead of the vote.
