MK Amichai Chikli, a mutinous member of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s Yamina party, took part in a meeting today of opposition leaders led by former premier Benjamin Netanyahu, according to the Kan public broadcaster.

Yamina is reportedly considering declaring Chikli a defector, which he has vowed to fight despite having opposed the party on nearly everything since Bennett’s power-sharing government took office in June.
