Deputy Health Minister and United Torah Judaism chairman Yaakov Litzman reiterated his promise not to enter a coalition with Blue and White on Sunday morning، According to The Jerusalem Post.

"I won't go with (Benny) Gantz if (Yair) Lapid is in، also if the world is turned upside down and also if the rotation agreement is cancelled،" Litzman told Army Radio.

In a recent joint statement، Litzman and the leader of Shas، longtime political allies of Netanyahu — declared they will recommend to the president that the prime minister be tasked with forming the coalition after the election.

They went on to rule out sitting in any future coalition with secularist Yair Lapid، head of the Yesh Atid party and second-in-command of Blue and White. Yesh Atid advocates military and national service for Haredi youth and injecting a modern curriculum into traditionalist ultra-Orthodox schools.

"We will join، united and together، only a coalition formed by Netanyahu، and will be strong partners at his side. We will not negotiate or discuss joining a coalition that includes Yair Lapid under any circumstances،” Litzman said.
