PM meets with right-wing faction heads in effort to unite for coalition talks

The senior leadership of the Yamina, United Torah Judaism and Shas parties have arrived at the Prime Minister’s Office in Jerusalem for a meeting with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu regarding a possible coordination effort as a united bloc going into coalition negotiations.

With 91% of the vote counted, the right-wing bloc has just 55 seats — not enough to form a coalition on its own.

However, Channel 12 reports Netanyahu is hoping that Rivlin will consider the 55 seat bloc as a single party and therefore agree to task the premier with forming the next government for having a bigger-sized faction than the Blue and White party.
