Prime Minister Naftali Bennett is sitting down for yet another meeting with fellow Yamina MK Nir Orbach, who has been tapped as one of the most likely defectors from the government as it teeters on the edge of collapse.

The two also met earlier this morning, and said following that meeting that they had nothing to report. They also sat down together on both Wednesday and Thursday evenings last week. In between, Orbach met with Yamina’s No. 2, Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked, and the party’s Abir Kara.

Orbach has reportedly told Bennett that the coalition has no shot at long-term survival, and that it is only a matter of time before it dissolves.
