Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked has been invited to meet with Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, according to Hebrew-language media reports.

Shaked has for years been rumored to be eyeing a return to the Likud party, having begun her career as a staffer for Netanyahu in the Prime Minister’s Office.

Additionally, she has frequently clashed with coalition partners from left-wing parties.

However, she has a fractious relationship with Netanyahu and his wife, Sara — last year she was heard in leaked recordings describing them as “dictators” and “tyrants” with a “lust for power,” adding that the opposition chief only cared about his ongoing corruption trial.
