Yamina MKs Nir Orbach and Abir Kara will soon sit down with Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked, their party’s No. 2, according to a report in Maariv.

With the coalition appearing to be on the brink of collapse, Orbach has been viewed as the most likely next defector who could deal the final blow to the government. He sat down with Bennett both Wednesday and Thursday evenings as well as this morning.

Orbach has publicly denied persistent rumors that he is in negotiations to join the opposition Likud party, but sources close to him have told Hebrew media outlets that such a move is under consideration.
