Benjamin Netanyahu’s 12-year run as Israel’s prime minister ended on June 13 with parliament approving a new “government of change” led by nationalist Naftali Bennett. Heading into opposition, Netanyahu, 71, the most dominant Israeli politician of his generation, pledged he would soon return to power. In a raucous session in which Netanyahu’s right-wing & ultra-Orthodox supporters shouted “shame” & “liar” at Bennett, parliament voted confidence in his new administration by a razor thin 60-59 majority. A former defence minister & a high-tech millionaire, Bennett, 49, was due to be sworn in shortly after the vote. His alliance includes for the first time in Israel’s history a party that represents its 21% Arab minority. With little in common except for a desire to end the Netanyahu era and political impasse that led to four inconclusive elections in two years, the coalition of left-wing, centrist, right-wing & Arab parties is likely to be fragile. Under a coalition deal, Bennett will be replaced as prime minister by centrist Yair Lapid, 57, in 2023. Watch the video to know more.
