Israel PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s rivals strategize on a deal to oust him

Bennett said, “God willing, together we can save the country from a tailspin and return Israel to its course.”


Reportedly, on Saturday a former ally of Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced a strategy to join a possible coalition government that could end the premier’s 12-year tenure. 

Naftali Bennett, the leader of the right-wing Yamina party, has shown interest in forming a national unity government with Yair Lapid, the leader of the centrist party Yesh Atid. Bennett said, “God willing, together we can save the country from a tailspin and return Israel to its course.” 

The deal, in which Bennett would serve as prime minister under a rotation with Lapid, must be finalized by a deadline of midnight on Wednesday.

Bennett’s party has six seats in the 120-member Israeli parliament, which would give a clear majority to the proposed coalition government. 

In the March general elections, Netanyahu failed to secure a decisive, majority. It was Israel’s fourth indecisive vote in two years. 

On Sunday Israeli prime minister slammed the proposal and said, “A government like this is a danger to the security of Israel, and is also a danger to the future of the state.”

He has also urged the politicians not to join the ‘leftist government’ and accused Bennett of betraying the right-wing in Israel.
