The notoriously cool relationship between Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and New Right MK Naftali Bennett has become warmer recently, which may pave the way for Bennett to return to a minister position, a Channel 12 News report said.

The report said that the Prime Minister's Office is very seriously considering the possibility of re-appointing Bennett as a member of the government, six months after he was dismissed as Education Minister by Netanyahu.

The available ministries that Bennett could receive are the Diaspora Ministry which Bennett held together with the Education Ministry before he was dismissed, as well as the Welfare Ministry and the Defense Ministry - which Netanyahu currently retains.

A decision on Bennett's reappointment as a minister is expected soon.
