Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked is reportedly already close to a new political partnership hours after she split with Yoaz Hendel.

Shaked, who inherited the reins of Yamina from Naftali Bennett after he decided to take a break from politics, joined with Hendel’s Derech Eretz faction in July to form the new Zionist Spirit party.

According to the Kan public broadcaster, Shaked — who started her political journey with Bennett in Jewish Home — is in talks to return to the party and lead it in the next election.

Kan reports that Shaked would take first spot in the traditional religious-Zionist party and its current head, Yossi Brodny, would take the second.

It remains in question if such a partnership would succeed in crossing the electoral threshold on November 1.
