Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid has passed along a message to the Yamina party that he is prepared to accept a scenario in which Yamina head Naftali Bennett will be prime minister so long as he agrees to first pledge that he will not join a Netanyahu government, Channel 12 reports.

The report does not specify whether Lapid is willing to split the premiership with Bennett in a rotational capacity or whether Bennett would be the sole prime minister.

Both sides are hesitant to be the first to move on the deal, Channel 12 reports.
