According to the office of Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid, he has conceded defeat in this week’s election to former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
According to a statement, Lapid thanked Netanyahu and gave his office the go-ahead to plan an orderly transfer of power.
According to Lapid, the state of Israel takes precedence over all political considerations. “For the benefit of the Israeli people and the state of Israel, I wish Netanyahu prosperity.”
The declaration was made by Lapid, who has been acting prime minister for the previous four months after a nearly final vote tally showed that Netanyahu had won a parliamentary majority.
Later on Thursday, final findings were anticipated.
When the former prime minister assumes office in the upcoming weeks, he will lead the nation’s most right-wing administration ever.
