Headed by Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid, who will both serve as Prime Ministers in turns, the new, prospective coalition government that will rule Israel, is still not out of the woods. With the Likud party and the Religious Zionist party searching for another MK to sell out their own party and publicly state that they will vote against the coalition, the change government is trying its best to get sworn-in this Wednesday.
As it stands, the coalition agreements between Lapid and Bennett have not yet been signed, and there are reportedly a few sections of the agreement that are still being ironed out. The parties stated that they are confident that everything will be finalized in the next 24 hours ahead of the swearing-in ceremony.
On Sunday night, a high-level meeting consisting of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett, Alternate Prime Minister and projected Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, The current and projected Defense Minister Benny Gantz, the projected Finance Minister Avigdor Lieberman, the projected Transportation Minister Meirav Michaeli, the Projected Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar, the projected Health Minister Nitzan Horovitz, and the projected head of the Interior Ministry Committee Mansour Abbas was held Dan Hotel in Tel Aviv and mimicked a miniature cabinet meeting.
Soon after, a notification addressing the Knesset Speaker was published, wherein the Yamina Party laid out the importance of the swearing-in ceremony to be held this coming Wednesday.
