So-called president of the ‘Israeli’ entity Reuven Rivlin tasked Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with forming the apartheid entity’s new government after last week's deadlocked elections.

The announcement on Wednesday followed a joint meeting between Rivlin, Netanyahu and the latter's main challenger, Benny Gantz.

Nominated by Rivlin on live TV, Netanyahu will have 28 days to put together a government and can ask the president for a two-week extension if necessary.

"I have decided to give you, Sir, the opportunity to assemble a government," Rivlin said to Netanyahu at a nomination ceremony.

Netanyahu's right-wing Likud party and centrist Gantz failed to reach a coalition deal in talks launched on Tuesday.
