Amid mounting reports that he is in talks to defect from the coalition, Yamina MK Nir Orbach is set to meet his party chief, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, at 8:30 p.m. (Israel time) in Tel Aviv.

Orbach has denied the reports that he’s in talks with opposition chief Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud.

The developments have come as the coalition careens from one crisis to the next, with government lawmakers increasingly fighting among themselves.
