Bennett said to tell Netanyahu he’s willing to join government with Ra’am

The main message Naftali Bennett is conveying to Prime Minister Netanyahu in their meeting is that he’s willing to enter any right-wing government, but that the premier is responsible for splitting Bezalel Smotrich from himself and now has to deal with the consequences, the Kan public broadcaster reports.

Smotrich opposes a government propped up by the Islamist Ra’am party, denying Netanyahu a potential majority. The premier is trying to persuade him to change that stance.

Channel 13 news reports that Bennett will say he’s willing to join a coalition with Ra’am if Smotrich changes course.
