Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin NetanyahuBenjamin (Bibi) Netanyahu is more Congressmen tried to use this on Tuesday to try to piece together a ruling coalition, as lawmakers are looking for a way to avoid the unprecedented fifth election in two years.
Israeli President Reuven Rivlin (Reuven Rivlin), who mainly serves as the prestigious president, said that Netanyahu is most likely to form a coalition with a majority in the country’s parliament.
Netanyahu’s Likud party won 30 seats in the most recent general election, and 52 seats, along with its right-wing and polar Orthodox partners. This means that the Prime Minister will oversee the bloc that won the most seats early last month, although he is still not enough to hold the 61
“I made a decision based on the number of recommendations, which shows that Benjamin Netanyahu (MK Benjamin Netanyahu) has a slightly higher chance of forming a government. Therefore, I decided to entrust him to do so,” Rivlin said in the announcement.
“In my opinion, this is not an easy decision on the basis of morality and morality…[T]The State of Israel should not be taken for granted. I am worried about my country. “He added. “But I am doing what I want as the President of the State of Israel, in accordance with the law and court rulings, and fulfilling the wishes of the sovereign nation of Israel. ”

Rivlin’s decision allows Netanyahu to have 28 days to try to form a coalition that will obtain the necessary seats to occupy the majority of seats in the parliament and possibly extend his efforts by 14 days. If Natanyahu fails, Rivlin can ask another person to form a government.
Rivlin’s move to use Netanyahu came the day after the president met with representatives of all 13 political parties that had won seats in the Knesset to make recommendations on who should form a coalition.
The March election was the fourth provisional election held in two years after multiple attempts to win the 61-seat coalition. This unprecedented pace has highlighted political divisions across the country.
Natanyahu has vowed to form a “full right-wing government,” despite efforts to win the unanimous support of countless small right-wing parties that have won seats. He also needs to walk a tightrope to persuade another hard-right party to join a coalition of a small Arab Islamic party.
The 90 seats that Rikud failed to win were divided among several parties, and the centrist Yesh Atid party won the second seat with 17 points in March. However, Netanyahu’s centrist and liberal opposition are still too divided to form a coalition rival Likud.
“The president has fulfilled his duties and he has no choice,” Yair Lapid, leader of Yesh Atid, said after Rivlin’s announcement. “But it is a shameful shame to delegate Netanyahu’s mandate to the Israelis. It humiliates Israel and humiliates our status as a law-abiding country.”
For Netanyahu, the next few weeks will be crucial as he is also trying to combat corruption charges against him. Staying in power can help Netanyahu defeat allegations of fraud, breach of trust, and bribery in three different cases.
Netanyahu pleaded not guilty to all charges and said that the case against him was a “witch hunt.”
