A heaped up to stop Netanyahu. In Israel, after 12 years of Bibi’s reign, the time comes for Yair Lapid who announced to the President of the Republic that he had formed the new government. “I have just informed President Reuven Rivlin that I have managed to form the new government,” centrist party leader Yesh Atid wrote on Twitter. “This government will work for all citizens of Israel, those who voted for it and those who did not. I will do everything to unify Israeli society,” he added. The new executive will be the last one launched by Rivlin. In the last few hours Isaac Herzog, the “noble” son of Israeli politics, was elected, also with the Likud voits. Rivlin took note of the formation of the new government and sent a clear message to Lapid: “Congratulations to Yair Lapid and the leaders of the parties that formed the ruling coalition. We now expect the Knesset to meet as soon as possible to ratify the government as required by law “.
The ruling coalition put together by Yair Lapid includes eight parties: the centrists of Yesh Atid and Blue and White, with the Labor and radical left of Meretz, along with the right-wing nationalist parties Yisrael Beiteinu, New Hope and Yamina. For the first time, an Arab-Israeli party – the Islamist conservatives of Ram – officially participates in the formation of an executive of the Jewish state. Yair Lapid assured President Reuven Rivlin that the new government he put together “will work in the service of all Israeli citizens” and “will do everything to unite all parts of Israeli society”. The executive will stand on the Lapid-Bennet pact. The first, secular, is ready to divide the Territories from Israel. Bennett, a religious, wants to annex some territories of the West Bank to the Jewish state.
In fact, it ends with a maxi coalition anti-Netanyahu, Bibi’s very long adventure in the prime minister’s chair that has lasted uninterruptedly since 2009. Certainly the government’s turn to the center and to the left will have consequences for the entire Middle Eastern region inflamed by the continuous attacks of Gaza on Israel and on the fragile balance on the battleground of Jerusalem. To underline, as already mentioned, also the entry into the majority that supports the executive of Ràam’s Israeli Arab party. This is the first time in the history of Israel. Now we need to understand what Netanyahu’s next move might be. But certainly the political framework in Israel remains rather fragile and the anti-Bibi coalition could fall apart in a short time, bringing the country back to the polls once again.
