Yamina MK Ayelet Shaked is supportive of party leader Naftali Bennett’s efforts to form a government with Yesh Atid’s Yair Lapid, Yamina sources have told The Times of Israel.

Additionally, Yamina MK Idit Silman has no intention on disrupting Bennett’s effort to form a government. Silman was mentioned as a lawmaker who could join fellow Yamina MK Amichai Chikli in voting against a unity government, due to such a coalition needing to rely on some leftist parties and Lapid.
