JERUSALEM: Developments of political transition have been reported in Israel in the wake of the tense situation between Hamas-Israel.
Israeli nationalist hardliner Naphtali Bennett has said he will join a coalition to oust longtime Israeli leader Benjamin Netanyahu and form a new government.
Netanyahu’s opposition leaders are engaged in a heated debate over the formation of a coalition government. Netanyahu has been charged with fraud and corruption.
Netanyahu’s Likud party won the most seats in the March polls but failed to form a government without a clear majority.
Attempts to form a coalition government are now underway in Israel, with opposition leader and former TV presenter Yer Lapid set a deadline of Wednesday (June 1) to form a coalition.
Lapid Bennett is seeking to form a coalition government with other Arab-Israeli lawmakers. Meanwhile, Bennett has said he will join a coalition government to form a new government.
