MK Ayelet Shaked, number two on Yamina’s list, recently received an offer from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to be his number two and to receive the Foreign Ministry, Arutz Sheva has discovered.
A spokesperson for Shaked responded: “MK Shaked worked more than anyone else to form a right-wing government. She has no intention of paying attention to all sorts of offers, which were immediately dismissed.”
“Yamina is working and will continue to work as one united party to prevent fifth elections, which are the most destructive and damaging thing for the citizens of the State of Israel.”
Meanwhile, Yamina and New Hope disagree on whose fault it is that a right-wing government has not been formed. According to sources in New Hope, Yamina chief MK Naftali Bennett is at fault for preventing such a government, Kan News reported.
Sources in Yamina have claimed that New Hope MKs Gideon Sa’ar, Ze’ev Elkin, and Yoaz Hendel acted out of fear when they refused to accept Netanyahu’s offer. The New Hope party, meanwhile, responded that “these statements do not reflect the party’s stance.”
