Netanyahu’s Mandate to Form ‘Israeli’ Government Set To Expire
By Staff, Agencies
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.
