The mandate of Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to form the occupation entity’s government expires Tuesday at midnight.

According to a report in ‘Israel’ Hayom newspaper, so-called ‘President’ of the occupation regime Reuven Rivlin is expected to give opposition leader, Yesh Atid chairman Yair Lapid, the next chance to put together a coalition instead of Yamina chairman Naftali Bennett.

Netanyahu was given the first opportunity by Rivlin on April 6 to cobble together a Zionist coalition after receiving 52 recommendations versus Lapid's 45.

Rivlin also has the option to give Netanyahu an extension to try and form a government or sending the mandate to the Knesset [Zionist parliament] for a 21-day-period after which a fifth round of elections would be called if a government is not formed during that time.

Netanyahu was considering requesting Rivlin to extend his mandate to form a government in the wake of the Meron incident, ‘Israeli’ Channel 12 reported on Friday.
