Prime minister-designate Benjamin Netanyahu and Religious Zionism head Bezalel Smotrich are meeting for the second time today, according to a Smotrich spokesperson.

This evening’s meeting is less than a day after a reported breakthrough in coalition talks between the two, which included Smotrich’s agreement to Likud’s request to quickly appoint a new Knesset speaker.
