Yamina MK Shirly Pinto says she hopes that her fellow party lawmaker Nir Orbach will return to support the coalition, but it is possible she could join a government led by opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu.

“He hasn’t finished his work,” Pinto says of Orbach, who announced yesterday that he would no longer vote with the coalition under further notice.

Pinto, a freshman lawmaker with the right-wing party, says that there are no plans to replace the current government with a new coalition without going to an election, but declines to rule out serving with Netanyahu in the future.
