Binyamin Netanyahu pledges to be prime minister of all citizens

President Rivlin Wednesday night entrusted Likud leader Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with forming Israel’s 34th government in line with the results of last week’s general election. "I see myself as the prime minister of all citizens of Israel," he said, "those who voted for me and those who did not" and promised to focus on that which “unites us.”
He pointed to the two challenges facing the next government: "Cementing our security" and preventing a nuclear deal being negotiated between six world powers and Iran. Netanyahu has 28 days to form a government with a two-week optional extension.
