There was no advancement over the weekend on the two demands with regards to the West Bank settlements that MK Nir Orbach (Yamina) insisted must be met in order for him to remain in the government’s coalition. Orbach issued his ultimatum after fellow Yamina MK Idit Silman resigned from the coalition on Wednesday, bringing it from a 61-majority to a 60-member block. The loss of another party member would bring the coalition down to a minority of 59 parliamentarians, which would make it susceptible to legislation that could send the country into another election cycle.

Likud and right-wing activists are pressuring the remaining four Yamina parliamentarians in the coalition to resign, with a particular focus on Orbach and Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked. Activists held protests outside of Orbach’s home from Friday through Saturday night. They also held a demonstration outside of Shaked’s home, holding up signs that said, “this isn’t normal” – resign.
