Yamina leader Naftali Bennett succeeded in stopping further defections from his party on Thursday, a day after MK Amichai Chikli rebelled against him. Chikli sent Bennett a letter on Wednesday expressing his opposition to the formation of a government with Yesh Atid, Meretz and Labor and backed from outside the coalition by Arab parties. Early Thursday morning, Chikli clarified that he would vote against the "formation of a government together with the Joint List and Meretz, just as we pledged to the electorate." But since then, three Yamina MKs have come out in support of Bennett, joining Ayelet Shaked, who did so in a long Facebook post on Wednesday night. Yamina MK Abir Kara attacked Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's failed attempt at forming a government and progressing his proposals, in a letter on Thursday.
