A similar announcement came this morning from Yair Lapid regarding his Yesh Atid party.
In the meantime, Prime Minister Netanyahu may already have enough MK's for a coalition.
Kahlon rejects Herzog offer & nominates Netanyahu for Phase 2. BB clinches with 61. Liberman could bring him to 68.Of course, he'd still have to get them all to agree on ministries....
