Netanyahu calls for opposing new cabinet
In the wake of the opposition parties reaching an agreement on a coalition government, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calls on right-wing Knesset members to oppose the incoming cabinet.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calls on right-wing Knesset members to oppose the incoming government, calling it a "dangerous left-wing government."
Opposition leader in "Israel" Yair Lapid announced that he successfully formed a coalition to oust Netanyahu.
Lapid said that he informed Israeli President Reuven Rivlin of the success of his efforts to form a government that has the "support of a binding quorum," noting that he will alternate its prime ministry with the "Yamina" party leader Naftali Bennett.
Bennett had announced that there is no right-wing government in "Israel" headed by Benjamin Netanyahu... "Either there are fifth elections or a unity government."
Israeli media reported that Isaac Herzog was elected Wednesday as President of "Israel," noting that Herzog is the 11th president of "Israel." He won by obtaining an overwhelming majority in the Knesset, reaching 87 votes out of 120 without revealing their identities.
In the wake of the opposition parties reaching an agreement on a government coalition, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken confirmed that his country would work with any government that takes power in "Israel."
In statements to CNN, Blinken said that the Israelis will make their own decisions about their government, "like any democracy," adding that they will work with any Israeli government to move forward as they did in the past.
