After Wednesday's marathon series of discussions between Naftali Bennett of the Bayit Yehudi party, Yair Lapid of the Yesh Atid party and Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu of the Likud Party, the latest reports indicate they have reached a compromise. Although Likud prefers that Education Minister Gideon Saar remain in his position they may have agreed to allow the Yesh Atid party's Rabbi Shai Piron take it over for the new administration. Likud's election literature praised Saar's work and celebrated Israel's recent triumphs in educational excellence. Yesh Atid, Israel's newly elected second largest party demanded the Education portfolio in exchange for helping Likud form the coalition government. Bayit Yehudi signed a deal with Yesh Atid to support each other in all coalition negotiations.
