Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu has invited the leaders of his right-wing and religious bloc for individual meetings tomorrow in Jerusalem, his office says.

The meetings would come before Netanyahu is formally tasked with building a coalition, although he is expected to form one with his partners.

The Walla news site cites sources in Netanyahu’s bloc saying the meetings are not “official negotiations.”

Netanyahu is expected to meet with Itamar Ben Gvir, the leader of the far-right Otzma Yehudit party, later in the week as he is currently on holiday, Walla says.

Netanyahu’s bloc won 64 seats out of 120 in last week’s elections.
