Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday tried to prevent opponents from forming a government of change. He issued a statement requesting the opposition parties that we are currently in a critical phase regarding the security and future of Israel. In such a situation, you should avoid taking unexpected steps and avoid personal thoughts. On the other hand, media reports said that the agreement to overthrow Israel’s longest-serving leader could be imminent.
There have been four elections in Israel in the last two years. The deadline for opposition chief Yair Lapid to form an alliance ends on Wednesday. Lapid is very close to a deal with right-wing, moderate-way and leftist parties. Lapid’s prospect rests largely on the backing of right-wing politician Naphtali Bennett, whose Yamina Party has won six seats in parliament.
