Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Has Been Ousted As Israel's Prime Minister

Benjamin Netanyahu has been ousted as Israel’s prime minister, ending his 12-year rule. Naftali Bennet will be taking on the role following Knesset vote.

Naftali Bennett, a former ally of Netanyahu, has been sworn in as prime minister. Bennett will preside over a fragile coalition of eight parties with deep ideological differences. Netanyahu remains head of the Likud party and becomes opposition leader.

Thousands of Israelis celebrated at Rabin square in Tel Aviv as the swearing in of the new government took place. This resulted as the ousting of Netanyahu comes amidst claims that he had failed to improve diplomacy in the region.

Many are now hoping and praying that the new government will bring together both Palestine and Israel for progress in lasting peace and prosperity for all with the onset of this new government.

It’s official. Netanyahu has been ousted after 12 straight years with the slimmest majority. Naftali Bennett, former head of the settler movement council, is prime minister.
