ISRAEL (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said that he will transfer the leader of the Kahol-Lavan block Beni Ganz to the right to form a coalition after an unsuccessful attempt by the current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
“Prime Minister Netanyahu has returned the mandate to form a government to President Rivlin. The president received a statement from Netanyahu stating that he was returning the mandate to create a government to the president, as he couldn’t do it,” the Israeli President’s press service reported to Observatory.
In late September, Rivlin instructed Netanyahu to form the next government.
Knesset elections were held in Israel on September 17, the opposition bloc Kahol-Lavan received 26.5% of the vote, the Likud party Netanyahu won 25.8% of the vote.
An Israeli expert, a former diplomat, Alex Veksler, in a commentary on VZGLYAD newspaper, said that Netanyahu’s time has passed.
Beni Ganz, in turn, promised to form and lead a unity government.
