After an entire year of what seemed to the Israeli electorate as an “eternal election season” that included three separate elections and months upon months of intricate negotiations and political haggling, the nation of Israel finally has a government. Yesterday evening, at 7:15 p.m Jerusalem time, the two main rivals, Benny Gantz and Benjamin Netanyahu finally agreed to have an “Emergency Government” with a power sharing arrangement where Prime Minister Netanyahu will serve as Prime Minister for the first 18 months, and Benny Gantz for the second. Who will be in charge of which ministries? How has the Coronavirus helped to shape this decision? How does this decision affect the corruption charges for the Prime Minister? How will this decision affect the possibility of implementing the Trump Vision for peace and prosperity which includes annexing the settlement blocks?
Here to tell us all of the details is the exceedingly erudite and astute Alex Traiman, the Managing Director and Jerusalem Bureau Chief of the Jewish News Syndicate.
Hear Alex’s cogent and timely analysis of the new government in Israel from April 21.
