Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked will take over the Yamina party once Prime Minister Naftali Bennett steps down from the post, Channel 12’s Amit Segal reports without citing any sources.

The network says Deputy Religious Affairs Minister Matan Kahana will try and run on the Blue and White slate in the upcoming election in a further indication of where Shaked hopes to take the party — further to the right and into the hands of Likud chairman Benjamin Netanyahu.
