The new government, under the partnership of Yair Lapid-Naftali Bennett, which ended Benjamin Netanyahu’s 12-year rule in Israel, is drawing attention as a government formed by the most extreme actors on the right and left of Israeli policy. In the new Israeli government, the Prime Minister will alternate between coalition partners Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid for 2 years each.
NETANYAHU ALWAYS TRYES TO PREVENT
In contrast, Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to take action to delay the vote of confidence, which is expected to take place by June 14. In the Israeli press, it was claimed that Netanyahu invited his allies to a meeting to exchange ideas on steps that could be taken to prevent the formation of a coalition government. The coalition bloc, on the other hand, submitted the petition to parliament with the signatures of 61 people to replace Speaker of Parliament Yariv Levin, a member of Netanyahu Likud’s party. The fact that 8 parties reach 1 number more than the 61 MPs needed to form the government raises questions as to whether the coalition will receive a vote of confidence.
