Ra’am said expected to actively support Bennett-Lapid government

The Islamist Ra’am party is expected to actively back a unity government led by Yamina chief Naftali Bennett and Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid, but will not be part of it, the Ynet news site reports.

In return, the government will honor the list of demands Ra’am made to Prime Minister Netanyahu’s Likud party, according to the report.

Bennett met earlier today with Abbas, and Channel 12 news says the two are expected to sit down again tomorrow with Lapid.

The report also says significant progress was made in coalition negotiations between Yesh Atid and Yamina today.
