Sources in the so-called “bloc of change” clarified in a briefing to reporters that the chances of forming a government without the Likud still exist and that the proposal given to Yamina chairman Naftali Bennett is still on the table.
It is unclear at this time whether members of the Yamina party will give Bennett the blessing to join a government of change led by him.
Meanwhile, the pressure from the right on Gideon Sa'ar and members of his party to join Netanyahu and form a full right-wing government continues, but Sa'ar refuses for the time being, and the Likud is not currently able to locate the two defectors it promised to bring if Bennett announces he would be joining the Netanyahu bloc.
At the same time, Yesh Atid has announced that they will advance some of the laws against Netanyahu in the Arrangements Committee this week, with the support of Sa'ar and possibly Yamina as well.
These include laws limiting the tenure of a Prime Minister and a law preventing the imposition of a mandate to form a government on a person against whom an indictment has been filed.
