The formation of the coalition came before the end of Netanyahu’s rivals to negotiate the government and, according to the Associated Press, prevented Israel from threatening its fifth parliamentary elections in just two years. The latter occurred on March 23.
The head of the far-right party, Jamina (right), will be Naftali Bennett, the first prime minister in the new Israeli government, and will be replaced on August 27, 2023 by Jair Lapid of the Center Party, Yassin Atid. Until then, he will likely take over as Secretary of State.
Small and medium parties will be represented across the political spectrum in the coalition. For the first time in the history of Israel, a group representing the Arab minority joined them.
According to Reuters, Netanyahu’s camp will try to deprive the coalition of the very close majority it has in parliament in the coming days and get its members to join.
The Darfur Peace Agreement says the likely date for the new government to be sworn in is June 14, but until then the government must have the support of a simple majority in the 120-member parliament.
The current prime minister of Netanyahu is the most prominent figure in Israeli politics for the past 30 years, he has served as prime minister for the past 12 years and also served in the second half of the 1990s.
