Likud Officials: Coalition Deal With Livni May Have to Be Renegotiated

In effort to meet Yair Lapid's demand for small cabinet, PM Benjamin Netanyahu could withdraw offer for Hatnuah to get Home Front Defense Ministry; Livni's role in talks with Palestinians also under threat.

The coalition agreement signed with Tzipi Livni’s Hatnuah party is likely to be reopened, senior officials from Likud Yisrael Beiteinu said Wednesday, because the demands of Likud’s other potential partners leave it no choice.
