Gafni, Smotrich meet after holding separate talks with Netanyahu
United Torah Judaism No. 2 Moshe Gafni and Religious Zionism leader Bezalel Smotrich are meeting at the Knesset after separately meeting with Likud chief Benjamin Netanyahu for coalition talks.
A spokesman for Gafni describes the sit-down with Smotrich as a “work meeting” ahead of the new government’s formation. The two are part of Netanyahu’s right-religious bloc, which won a majority in last week’s election and is now expected to become the ruling coalition.
