    With the left regaining some of their popularity & Lapid poaching mostly Likud voters Bibi may well have lost this coming election and if Labor had won the election then Shelly Y would have done everything possible to avoid inviting Liberman into her coalition. Between them Bibi & Liberman can almost certainly gain enough votes to give this new party a very comfortable lead Bibi will be PM and Liberman can have any ministry he choses. Add to that the nationalists & religious block and Bibi can form a coalition which does not include Labor although Kadima might be invited back just to increase the size of the coalition and make it more stable. Finally Bibi has seen that to many parties is not good for democracy same way to few is not good and merging into a few large parties is the way forward instead of lots of single issue parties that exist for the sole purpose of joining coalitions and gaining a disproportionate amount of influence.
