Yamina’s Bennett holds ‘good’ coalition talks with Islamist chief Abbas

Yamina leader Naftali Bennett meets with Ra’am chief Mansour Abbas for talks on the formation of a government.

Yamina describes the meeting as “good” and says the two discussed “various possibilities.”

“It was agreed that the negotiating teams will stay in touch and meet in the future,” the party says in statement.

The prospective unity government being negotiated between Yamina, Yesh Atid and several anti-Netanyahu parties will likely need the Islamist Ra’am to vote in favor of their coalition or abstain for it be sworn in with a majority.
