MK Uri Maklev claims that opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu has approved talks with unnamed parties within the coalition for the creation of a rotational government with Netanyahu, the former premier, at its head.
Maklev, of the opposition party United Torah Judaism, tells Ynet he doesn’t know the current state of talks, but claims they are taking place, adding to rampant speculation over the future of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s faltering government.
“I just know one thing, that Netanyahu himself said he won’t hold up the creation of an alternative government. He has also agreed to rotations. Regarding the question of who starts and who is guaranteeing it, there are no agreements,” the politician says, in comments that could be aimed at sowing suspicion and distrust to further destabilize the governing coalition.
