Netanyahu consolidates right-wing bloc of 55

Likud leader Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu is again meeting leaders of the right-wing and ultra-religious parties on Thursday to continue consolidating a bloc of 55 Knesset members, ready for the president to choose a candidate for leading the post-election government. Tuesday’s election ended in a stalemate, with neither of the main parties, Likud’s Netanyahu or Kachol Lavan’s Benny Gantz, with the numbers for a ruling coalition government. Gantz can count on no more than 43, unless Avigdor Lieberman’s neutral Yisrael Beitenu jumps in or the Arab Joint List pledges its support. A third election looms unless Netanyahu and Gantz can get together for a unity government.

    It would be a big mistake if Bibi will not continue and the joint list gets in power. They are more dangerous than Ilham omer

      Iran is an enemy of Arabs. Israel stands between an Iranian conquest of Arabs. The Muslim Brotherhood and Iran ate on the same side. Intent to destroy the Arabs.
