Bennett rejects report he fears some in party may jump ship if he joins Lapid

Naftali Bennett is dismissing as “spin” a report that the Yamina leader fears two of his party members will not join him if he attempts to form a government with Yesh Atid’s Yair Lapid and the so-called “change bloc.”

Kan news, citing senior officials in parties in the bloc, said Bennett had told them of his concern.

Bennett calls the report “complete fake news” and “spin.”

The party issues a statement that “it stands united and strong behind Bennett’s policy to form a government and prevent fifth elections and chaos.”
