Netanyahu's hopes of comeback crushed by Israeli right-wing ministers
The Israeli occupation Parliament is bracing to hold the fifth election in 3 years with no clear winner predicted.
After the Israeli decision to dissolve the Knesset and hold elections after next week's vote, some Israeli ministers have vowed to ensure Netanyahu does not return.
Two key right-wing ministers in "Israel's" outgoing coalition government vowed on Tuesday to prevent a comeback by former premier Benjamin Netanyahu as the country braced for a fifth election in three years with polling predicting no clear winner.
The Israeli occupation government announced its intent to dissolve the Parliament (the Knesset) while the occupation's Foreign Minister, Yair Lapid, will become a caretaker Prime minister instead of Naftali Bennett during the transitional period before heading for early elections.
According to Israeli Channel 12's political commentator, Amnon Abramovich, in the current manner of holding elections, "we're practically breaking 'Israel' apart one step at a time."
Netanyahu declared the move to dissolve parliament as "something great", eyeing an opportunity.
Surveys routinely give Likud approximately 30 of parliament's 120 seats, making it the largest party but requiring Netanyahu to find like-minded friends, including among current coalition members in Bennett's alliance.
Two of them, Finance Minister Avigdor Lieberman and Justice Minister Gideon Saar, have said they will not work with Netanyahu, who is facing corruption allegations that he keeps denying.
Saar told Army Radio that "I won't be bringing Bibi (Netanyahu) back. All of the party members are with me. No one will succumb to inducements (to defect to Likud)."
At a press conference, Lieberman stated that coalition MPs may tie the resolution to dissolve the Knesset to a bill prohibiting anybody under criminal investigation from leading a government.
Netanyahu's legal issues prevented him from forming the stable right-wing coalition he wanted through four elections in his final two years in government.
According to a survey conducted by "Tel Aviv" radio station 103 FM on Tuesday, Netanyahu and his expected rightist or ultra-Orthodox Jewish partners might command 59 parliament seats in the next election, compared to 55 anticipated for parties in the present coalition. Six seats were won by an Arab party that was not anticipated to support either alliance.
However, the ultimate political geography might shift if smaller parties merge or disintegrate, or if Netanyahu or Lapid, whose centrist Yesh Atid party is polling second, can reach out to unlikely partners.
Lapid: "Israel" in need of deep, wide reform
"Israel's" Foreign Minister, Yair Lapid, said during a press conference with Israeli occupation PM Naftali Bennett on Monday that "Israel's" challenges will not await, even if the elections are months away, adding that the rise in living costs and the fight against Iran, Hamas and Hezbollah are things that must be handled.
He further stated that what happened in the past few days is additional proof that the Israeli institution is in need of deep, wide reforms.
After the Israeli government announced its intent to dissolve Knesset, and for the occupation's Foreign Minister Yair Lapid to handle the premiership instead of Naftali Bennett in the interim period, before heading for early elections, Maariv said the agreed-upon date for the elections is October 25, 2022.
Israeli media outlets said the decision to dissolve Knesset was made after efforts were exhausted to keep some sort of stability in the coalition and that Naftali Bennett is currently in talks with party leaders.
It was also reported that Yair Lapid will be the one to receive Biden during his visit on July 13.
