There are growing concerns within the Likud party that a number of MKs could bolt the faction and join the Bennett government later this year, according to a report by Israel Hayom Monday morning. Likud officials were cited by the report saying that they fear that party members, including some senior Likud lawmakers, could jump ship after the coalition passes the state budget. Amid reports that Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked (Yamina) has been looking to recruit new coalition partners on the Right, Likud officials said the government may try to take advantage of divisions within the party and encourage MKs to bolt. “That will be the first thing the coalition does after passing the budget,” one official said. “After the budget is passed, they can reach understandings, when the government isn’t under threat and can take its time.”
