New Israeli Government Wins Majority Vote, Ending Netanyahu Tenure | World News
JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel’s parliament voted 60-59 in favour of a new government on Sunday, ending Benjamin Netanyahu’s 12-year consecutive tenure as premier. Ultra-nationalist Naftali Bennett will head the new cabinet, comprising parties from left to right, for a little over two years before his centrist ally, Yair Lapid, takes over.
