Netanyahu receives support of 63 members to form gov't: Israeli Media
Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu receives the support of 63 out of 120 legislators in his bid to form the next government.
The head of the Likud party, Benjamin Netanyahu, had obtained the support of 63 Knesset members, Israeli media said, noting that he will be assigned to form the Israeli government.
This comes after the victory of the pro-Netanyahu camp in the Knesset elections, which took place on the first of November.
Last Thursday, former Israeli occupation Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu secured his victory in the Israeli elections, as his 'far-right' coalition made up the majority of the Knesset.
According to results by the electoral commission, Netanyahu's Likud Party earned 32 seats in the Knesset, which has 120 seats. Two ultra-Orthodox Jewish parties put forward 18 candidates, with 14 others pertaining to the extreme-right alliance called Religious Zionism, giving Netanyahu's bloc a total of 64 seats.
The Israeli Elections Committee announced that the final voter turnout in the Knesset elections was 71.3%, the highest since 2015.
