Several senior right-wing lawmakers have announced on Sunday that they will refuse to sign the petition proposed by the Likud party to hand the mandate for the formation of a coalition government to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Among those who currently refuse to sign off are The Jewish Home's MK and Minister of Transportation Bezalel Smotrich, New Right MK Ayelet Shaked and Shas party leader and Minister of Interior Aryeh Deri.
All three stated that they will not sign the petition until Yisrael Beitenu party leader Avigdor Liberman does.
