Rivlin: ‘I can’t see a way to form a coalition’

Raoul Wootliff is the The Times of Israel's political correspondent.

Rivlin, challenging Yesh Atid representatives on whether they could support a government headed by someone other than party leader Yair Lapid, says he cannot see a way out of the deadlock.

“At the moment, I can’t see a way to form a coalition,” Rivlin says.

Yesh Atid MKs meeting with him say they do no rule out sitting with any partner in the coalition, including with Likud, provided that Netanyahu is not the head of the party.
