Bennett to address press tonight with Netanyahu’s pressure on him building

Yamina chairman Naftali Bennett will give a statement to the press at 7:10 p.m.

He is expected to address the ongoing political paralysis as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ups the pressure against him not to join with Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid to form an alternative government to one led by the Likud leader.

Netanyahu has called on Bennett to cease his talks with Lapid, but the premier’s bloc is not large enough to form a coalition even if Yamina plays ball.
