likud said to make progress in coalition talks with otzma yehudit shasפיגוע דם כניסה לעיר מטען חבלה איתמר בן גביר

Full agreement between Likud, Otzma Yehudit not yet signed; far-right party head’s portfolio to include control over West Bank Border Police; Religious Zionism talks remain stalled

Likud and Otzma Yehudit agreed early Friday on the positions the far-right party will hold in the incoming government, with Itamar Ben Gvir to serve in the newly created position of National Security Minister — an expanded public security minister role that includes oversight of the national police and Border Police in the West Bank.

The parties signed an annex to a coalition deal, though not yet the full deal itself, detailing the posts Otzma Yehudit will receive.

In addition to the National Security Ministry, the party will also hold the altered portfolio of the Development of the Negev, Galilee and National Fortitude Ministry (English translation as yet unofficial); the heritage portfolio, via the role of deputy minister in the Ministry of Economy; chairmanship of the Knesset’s Public Security Committee; and rotating chairmanship of the Special Committee for the Israeli Citizens’ Fund (which oversees state revenue from gas drilling).

The Negev and Galilee Ministry will be headed up by Otzma Yehudit No. 2 Yitzhak Wasserlauf, and Amichai Eliyahu will take on the Heritage Ministry portfolio.

The Negev and Galilee Ministry will receive an annual budget of NIS 2 billion (some $580 million) and will also be responsible for carrying out the regulation of new West Bank settlements.
