 Soon after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s mandate to build a coalition runs out next Tuesday, Yamina leader Naftali Bennett and Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid are expected to form what they are calling an Israeli unity government.

Bennett and Lapid have already had intense discussions about portfolios in the government they are working on forming. 
The main demand of Bennett has been that key ideological portfolios be given to ministers of Yamina and Gideon Sa’ar’s New Hope Party. 
Lapid has demanded that several ministries that have been built over the years will be deemed no longer necessary.
Very little has been leaked about portfolios, including to top figures in some of the parties. Nevertheless, it is still possible to provide educated guesses about which portfolio will go to whom in the government that is expected to have 24 ministers, including the prime minister.
