Netanyahu is out.. Bennett is sworn in
The "Government of Change" wins the Knesset's confidence and ends the rule of the Likud head, which lasted for 12 continuous years, and its head, Naftali Bennett, asserts that "the biggest threat it will face is the Iranian nuclear file."
The so-called “Government of Change” headed by Naftali Bennett won the Knesset's confidence by obtaining 60 votes against 59 votes, marking the first time in the history of the occupation that a government has taken an “oath of allegiance” without the support of a majority of 61 or more of the 120 Knesset members.
Parliament selected Mickey Levy, a lawmaker from Yair Lapid’s centrist party, Yesh Atid, to be its new speaker on Sunday afternoon.
Levy got the support of 67 members, including members of the "Joint Arab List".
At the beginning of the Knesset session, the new prime minister and head of the Yamina party, Naftali Bennett, said that "Israel" faces internal challenges today "and a continuing rift within the people, as manifested in these particular minutes."
And the Israeli Channel 12 website stated that "as soon as Bennett began giving his speech, riots broke out in the plenary session, which included shouts and insults against Bennett, who interrupted him and prevented him from continuing his statements."
