Yamina MK: Likud offering me ‘everything’ to defect, but has no alternative government

Yamina MK Abir Kara tells Kan news he’s getting offers from the Likud party to defect from the coalition, but signals he’s in no hurry to do so.

Likud “offers everything, anything you want,” he says. “But do they have a [potential] government? If they do, great, but they don’t.”

He says he does not see an alternative to the current government.

Kara says he suggested to Yamina’s rebels Amichai Chikli and Idit Silman that they form a new faction together “and be three critical fingers that get everything we want in the existing coalition.” But he says the idea has so far not panned out.
