Renegade Yamina MK Amichai Chikli says he met with former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu last night, but says he has not decided anything yet about his political future, according to Hebrew media reports.

“It was a getting-to-know-you meeting,” Chikli tells Walla News, “where I thanked Netanyahu for his kind words during his speech to the Knesset plenum” on Sunday. Chikli, who defected from Yamina and refused to vote in favor of the government coalition, has been reportedly discussing joining Likud, but has denied that Netanyahu promised him anything for his vote.
