The private Israeli channel (12) reported that the announcement of the coalition will take place within the next two days (no later than Sunday) and that both will be installed within 10 days by President Reuven Rivlin. p>
She added that the deal provides for Bennett (who won 7 Knesset seats) to become prime minister until September 2023, then Lapid (who won 17 seats) will take his place until November 2025.
Earlier, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – in a video posted to Twitter – referred to the alliance between Lapid and Bennett, saying: “It is an unimaginable fraud.”
He added that this was a blatant violation of all promises Bennett made to himself several weeks ago, when he declared during the war against the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) that the left-wing government had lost its chances, so what has changed now?
Netanyahu had failed to form a government that the Knesset (Parliament) trusted on the fourth of this month, and as a result, President Rivlin instructed Lapid to form a government within 28 days.
In the event that Lapid fails to form a government, the Israeli president has only one choice, which is to reassign the Knesset.
In such a case, the Knesset will have two options: either it finds among its members someone who is capable of forming a government that enjoys the confidence of 61 MPs, or it goes to new elections, which is the most likely option, according to observers.
And Israel had attended 4 elections since April 2019, following the failure of those responsible for constituting it to gain the required confidence of the Knesset (61 parliamentarians).
