A year and a half, three elections and a few weeks of the division of Ministerial portfolios took Israeli politicians for forming the largest government in the history of the country. Benjamin Netanyahu retained the post of Prime Minister. This will allow him to remain in power at the time starting a week from the court, where it passes in quality accused of bribery, fraud and breach of trust.By a majority of 73 votes out of 120 Knesset approved on Sunday the new government of Israel. 46 deputies voted against. At the same time he was chosen the new speaker of the Knesset. He was a former Minister of tourism and member of the Likud Yariv Levin.”Society wants the unity government, and that’s what society gets,” said Netanyahu during a plenary session at the Knesset, presenting a list of the national unity government. This is the fifth government which he will lead. According to him, if the country was forced to go to the polls for the fourth time in a row, it would cost 2 billion shekels (about $565 million), while the additional costs of the new government account for 85 million shekels per year, which is much smaller. Thus, Benjamin Netanyahu has attempted to answer the charge in creating the largest government in Israel’s history. In its composition of 36 Ministers and 16 Vice — many of the posts appeared for the first time to avoid resentment among loyal supporters. In the previous government had 23 Ministers (including the Prime Minister) and four Deputy Ministers.According to Benjamin Netanyahu, the first steps of the government will be the creation of the “office for combating coronavirus” and the approval of the state budget. He also paid particular attention to issues of security and foreign policy, stressing that “the time has come to extend sovereignty to the areas which are the cradle of the Jewish people.” We are talking about them earlier announced the annexation of the territory of the West Bank and the Jordan valley. Not without the beloved Prime Minister of the topic. “We will continue to fight against Iranian attempts to gain a foothold militarily in Syria and its attempts to obtain nuclear weapons,” the Prime Minister promised.After it was made by the leader of the “Kahal-Laban” benny Gantz, who is in the new government the post of the replacement of the Prime Minister and defense Minister. According to the coalition agreement, Netanyahu and benny Gantz will take turns to occupy the post of Prime Minister — every year and a half. For the first time in Israel’s history two people simultaneously uttered the oath of the Prime Minister, although the change of Prime Ministers should take place only on 17 November 2021.”Frankly, each of us would prefer another government,” said benny Gantz, referring to Benjamin Netanyahu. According to the leader “Kajol-Laban,” they both had to make difficult choices to avoid a fourth consecutive election to the Knesset. He tried to imagine an Alliance with “Likud” as a concession on the part of Benjamin Netanyahu. “After 11 years in power you have made the decision to accept the verdict of the voters, and to share a table with my friends and with me”— he turned to Benjamin Netanyahu.During the coalition negotiations, Mr. Gantz has lost some of his associates on the unit, which was three elections. The two parties were part of the “Kahal-Laban”, refused to enter into an Alliance with Benjamin Netanyahu, that is, in contrast to the head unit kept his word to voters. “I wanted a way to improve life in the country we have done together, but you chose to destroy our partnership and our Alliance,” said his former colleagues benny Gantz.He answered Yair Lapid, who as a result of a split in the “Kahal-Laban” became the head of the parliamentary opposition bloc “Yesh Atid — TELEM”. “In normal life with three indictments may not even be a Deputy headmaster, doctor, driver of the Minister, an officer of the Israel defense forces. And we have two of the chief of staff succumbed to the man with three criminal charges,” said he, adding that in terms of unemployment and other economic problems caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the ruling coalition creates a “bloated government at the expense of those who lost their livelihoods”.All the speeches of politicians was accompanied by indignant comments and shouts of their opponents in the Knesset, dissatisfied with what is happening. Many in Israel are wondering whether you motley the government to serve all the allotted time? There is doubt whether there will be a transfer of authority from one Prime Minister to another in six years. A lot depends on how you would run a trial where the main defendant in cases of bribery, fraud and breach of trust is Benjamin Netanyahu. The trial was supposed to begin in March, immediately after the last Israeli election, but was delayed due to coronavirus on may 24. According to Israeli law, the Prime Minister can remain in office, even if under investigation, until the court finally finds him guilty. And this is the main reason why Netanyahu sought to cling to power at any price that in the end he succeeded. Along the way, he managed to destroy not only block “Kajol-Laban,” but the Union of the left and even some right-wing parties. Now his government consists of people, many of which are for Ministerial portfolios came through on their promises to voters and will be forced to hold on to their seats. Oble��chaet Mr. Netanyahu the situation and the lack of unity in the opposition, where the fragments of “Kajol-Laban” and left-wing parties, Arab bloc and some religious and right-wing parties. At the same time, in the allocation of Ministerial posts, first appeared almost a revolt within the Likud, whose members once swore allegiance to Benjamin Netanyahu.Trying to accommodate the maximum number of wishes Benjamin Netanyahu were forced to postponed the oath of office for a few days. The ceremony was originally scheduled to be held on 13 may. First, she was moved to the day of arrival in Israel of US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo. However, it was merely a convenient pretext of the process of distribution of Ministerial portfolios was delayed, and Benjamin Netanyahu had to take another postponement. In the end, a complete list of government became known in the course of the plenary session of the Knesset on Sunday.In the new government rotation will affect not only the position of Prime Minister. Change of Binyamin Netanyahu, benny Gantz for a year and a half will lead to a chain of substitutions. So, the new foreign Minister Gabi Ashkenazi will become the defense Minister, and his place will be Miri Regev that the first half of the year will be Minister of transport. To replace it, in turn, comes ze’ev Elkin, who will combine two posts — the Minister for higher education and Minister for water resources. He, most likely, will remain at the post of cochairman of the Russian-Israeli intergovernmental Commission.For the first time as Minister in Israel was received by the representative of the Ethiopian community Pnina Tamano-Shata. She became the Minister of aliyah and integration, which were formerly frequently taken by the representatives of the Russian community. However, they also were not Ministerial portfolios. In addition Zeev Elkin to the government included the former speaker of the Knesset Yuli Edelstein. He was given the post of Minister of health.Steel is also known for the names of the new ambassadors in key positions. Israel’s Ambassador to the US and the UN was Gilad Erdan, former Minister of internal security, propaganda and strategic Affairs. The place of Ambassador to the UK was taken by the Minister of communications David Amsalem. The expected appointment of Ambassador to Russia. According to ze’ev Elkin, it would be more diplomatic and not a political appointment.Marianna Belenkaya
