Channel 12 reports “significant progress” in coalition talks with the Labor party.
Labor party leader Merav Michaeli is expected to be offered a “senior economic” ministerial portfolio and a second “significant portfolio,” in exchange for joining the coalition of the so-called “change bloc” of Netanyahu’s rivals.
The report does not specify which offices are being offered.
Michaeli, speaking at a Labor faction meeting, says she’s ready to sign a coalition agreement today.
“We have made concessions that no other party has made. We’ve come a long way. And we are ready to close [the deal] as soon as today,” she says.
