Another Yamina MK claims Netanyahu tried to entice her to defect with jobs, spot in Likud

Another Yamina lawmaker claims she was offered official posts and a reserved spot in the ruling Likud party by numerous envoys dispatched by Prime Minister Netanyahu.

“Thanks, but no,” MK Idit Silman writes on Facebook. “I’m not interested in that but in preventing fifth elections and stopping the chaos that you [Netanyahu] led the country to.”

She also says she is sticking with Yamina leader Naftali Bennett and backs his efforts to form a “good government in Israel” as soon as possible.

“I believe in Bennett’s path, the Yamina party and the ability of our wonderful nation to cooperate at this time,” Silman says.
