Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked said on Monday that Yamina, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s party, would veto any changes to the Nation-State Law.

As political pressure on the issue mounts, Shaked said, “I recommend that my friends in the coalition stop amusing themselves by thinking they can make changes in Basic Laws that are not agreed upon. It won’t happen, as is set in the coalition agreement.”

Shaked’s comments come after Finance Minister Avigdor Liberman said that the government should amend the current law. In addition, Defense Minister Benny Gantz declared his Blue and White party plans to bring forward an equality bill to amend the law.
