A second Yamina MK hinted Wednesday that he may not remain in the Bennett government, shortly after coalition chairwoman Idit Silman (Yamina) announced her plans to resign from the coalition. MK Nir Orbach told Giluy Da’at Wednesday that he will not sit in any government which freezes construction in Israeli towns in Judea and Samaria. “I won’t sit in a government that freezes construction in Judea and Samaria,” Orbach said, adding that a building freeze “is something that we are dealing with.” When asked how he views Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Orbach called him “A friend. His heart is in the right place. A man of the people of Israel, the Land of Israel, and the Torah of Israel.” Regarding Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, Orbach said: “I’d prefer it he and I only dealt with things in the consensus. He is a man [representing] people who mean well.”
