Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has not called Bayit Yehudi leader Naftali Bennett since the closing of polls in Tuesday's Knesset election, Makor Rishon reported on Wednesday.

A source close to Bennett confirmed the report to the The Jerusalem Post.

Netanyahu failed to call Bennett, whose Bayit Yehudi party garnered 11 mandates in Tuesday's election, despite having placed calls to several other potential coalition partners, including Yair Lapid of Yesh Atid, Aryeh Deri and Eli Yishai of Shas, and Yaakov Litzman of United Torah Judaism.
