After a stormy debate in the Knesset, the Knesset voted 60 to 59 (with one abstention from Ra’im’s list) to confirm the new “change” government and oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Yamina Chairman Naftali Bennett was sworn in as Israel’s 13th prime minister in the 36th Israeli government, followed by Yesh Atid head Yair Lapid, who would serve as alternate prime minister and foreign minister for two years, before becoming prime minister as part of the rotation. Agreement with Bennett, then the rest of the new government ministers. Mickey Levy, Yesh Atid Speaker of the Knesset was voted as Speaker of the Knesset by 67 to 52. There was a stormy session of the Knesset before the vote on the new Speaker and the new government. During Naftali Bennett’s speech, he was severely harassed, and MKs from the far-right Religious Zionism party were expelled from the plenum. Hard-line MKs and Likud described Bennett as a fraud and a liar. “I must give credit to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for detente in meetings with Mansour Abbas and reaching out to him,” Bennett said. “You paved the way.” Bennett said he took responsibility to avoid more and more elections and that the new government would represent the citizens of Israel from Tel Aviv to Ofra and from Rahat to Kiryat Shmona. Lapid said he was ashamed of the Knesset’s behavior during Bennett’s speech, and therefore would give up delivering the speech he had prepared. In his speech, Netanyahu attacked Bennett and repeated that he defrauded Yamina voters. He vowed to continue his life defending Israel and promoting its prosperity and vowed “I’ll be back sooner than you think” Posted by Globes, Israel business news – en.globes.co.il – June 13, 2021 © Globes Publisher Itonut (1983) Ltd. 2021
