Netanyahu declines to offer Bennett rotation in secret meeting
The leak that the meeting took place was seen as an attempt by Bennett to pressure Lapid to accept his demand that ideological portfolios go to MKs from Yamina and New Hope and not Labor or Meretz.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held a secret meeting with Yamina chairman Naftali Bennett at the Prime Minister’s Residence in Jerusalem on Thursday in an effort to form a right-wing government before Netanyahu’s mandate from President Reuven Rivlin ends on Tuesday night, sources close to Bennett confirmed Sunday. Neither party agreed to reveal the content of the meeting, but one side told The Jerusalem Post that Netanyahu did not offer Bennett to go first in a rotation in the Prime Minister’s Office.

Ideas that have been floated in Likud include initiating a direct election in which Netanyahu and Bennett would both be candidates for prime minister and Likud recommending to Rivlin that Bennett receive the second mandate so that Bennett could form a government with Netanyahu. “We have nothing to say about the negotiations,” a Likud spokesman said. The leak that the meeting took place was seen as an attempt by Bennett to pressure opposition leader Yair Lapid to accept his demand that ideological portfolios such as Justice, Education, Interior and Religious Services go to MKs from Yamina and New Hope and not to Labor or Meretz.

According to Israel news bibi has announced deal with Bennett to form govt. Bennett so far has denied it. Also will let Bennett be PM first in a rotation deal for first year. If true this could be massive.
