In a tweet sent by Bayit Yehudi head Naftali Bennett, the religious Zionist leader suggested that negotiations to form a coalition have come to an impasse, writing:  "Unilaterally taking the religious portfolio from religious Zionist and delivering it to Shas ends negotiations with Bayit Yahudi."

When negotiations began at the end of last month,  Bennett had warned that he was not afraid of sitting in the opposition if he does not get what he wants in the coalition negotiations.

At the same time, President Reuven Rivlin will formally grant Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu two more weeks to form a governing coalition Monday morning in a ceremony at the President's Residence in Jerusalem.
