The Yamina party says its leader Naftali Bennett will meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu tomorrow as part of negotiations to form a coalition.
It adds Bennett will also meet opposition chief Yair Lapid on Saturday night for the same reason.
Both Netanyahu’s bloc of supporters and the anti-Netanyahu bloc are competing for Yamina’s backing, which is crucial to muster a 61-strong majority in the Knesset. Even with Bennett’s support, both sides are expected to face significant hurdles.
Bennett has been demanding that he become prime minister in a power-sharing deal with either Lapid or Netanyahu, despite his party only having seven Knesset seats.
