Prime Minister Naftali Bennett expelled MK Idit Silman from the Yamina faction meeting on Monday afternoon after she refused to confirm that she would support the appointment of Matan Kahana as religious affairs minister, after he resigned from the ministry last Friday.

In response, Bennett asked Silman, “Have you no shame to come here?”

Silman threw the government into chaos last month when she resigned as coalition whip, removing the coalition’s majority of 61 MKs to just 60 MKs.
