An Israel Channel 10 report speculated on Sunday that Likud and Yisrael Beytenu are headed their separate ways.
Avigdor Liberman will be holding a press conference at 11:00 AM on Monday, where it is believed he may announce the split between the two parties.
If the parties do split, then the Likud will remain the largest party in the coalition by only one seat, while Yisrael Beytenu will drop down to being the fifth largest party, sharing that spot with Shas.
Others are questioning the credibility of the report, since dividing the two parties would cause both Likud and Yisrael Beytenu to lose power and influence against the Bennett-Lapid alliance, which appears to still be holding strong.
Even before elections there were rumors that the two parties would split once a government was formed.Jewish Press News Briefs
