Channel 12 news is reporting that people close to outgoing Prime Minister Naftali Bennett are recommending he not run in upcoming elections.

The network says his aides have recommended he announce he is quitting as the Knesset is expected to formally be dispersed next week.

Some Yamina party members have said Bennett will run in the election, which is expected in the fall.

Bennett’s office does not respond to Channel 12’s request for comment.
