Bennett to meet with Lapid for talks on possible government

Yamina leader Naftali Bennett is set to meet this evening with Yesh Atid chief Yair Lapid for talks on potentially forming a government following the March 23 Knesset elections.

The meeting follows Bennett’s sit-down yesterday with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Bennett has refrained from backing either Netanyahu or the premier’s rivals, positioning him as a potential kingmaker after his right-wing Yamina party picked up seven seats in the elections.
