Netanyahu ousted, Naftali Bennett is Israel's new PM

Jun 14, 2021 07:08 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Naftali Bennett was on Sunday sworn in as Israel's new Prime Minister, ending Benjamin Netanyahu's 12-year hold on power and the political uncertainty that gripped the Jewish nation for months after inconclusive elections.

Bennett, the 49-year-old leader of the right-wing Yamina party, took oath of office after the Knesset elected him as the 13th Prime Minister of Israel.

The new government - an unprecedented coalition of ideologically divergent political parties drawn from the Right, the Left and the Centre, along with an Arab party - has a razor-thin majority of 60 to 59 in a 120-member house.

Amid incessant heckling from rival bloc’s lawmakers, Bennett said that he is proud "of the ability to sit with people of different opinions".

In his address to parliament, Netanyahu vowed to bring down this "dangerous government".
