Fate of Israel's government to be decided next week with Orbach ultimatum

The week ahead will determine whether Israel is en route to an election in the fall, a new government in the current Knesset, or the same government continues to fight for its life against all odds, sources close to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said on Thursday. Bennett met with Yamina MK Nir Orbach, a close confidant over the past decade, who will decide in the week ahead whether to bring down Bennett’s government. The prime minister, who initiated the Thursday night meeting, asked Orbach for more time.

Orbach told Bennett that he will insist on the government no longer being dependent on the Ra’am (United Arab List) Party, and its MKs no longer being able to paralyze the work of the Knesset. Orbach also demanded that MKs Mazen Ghanaim (Ra’am) and Ghaida Rinawie Zoabi (Meretz), who voted against the Judea and Samaria emergency bill, resign from the Knesset. Despite pressure from their party leaders, neither of them was willing to resign as of Thursday night.

Sensible.
