Key parties signed coalition agreements with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Friday, clearing the way for him to inform President Shimon Peres that a new government has been formed, a statement from his office said.
"The prime minister welcomes the coalition agreements that have been signed between the Likud and Yisrael Beitenu (on one side) and the Yesh Atid party and the Jewish Home," the statement said.
"On Saturday evening, the prime minister will inform President Shimon Peres that he has completed the task" of forming a government.
Brain dead question ... I thought Israel HAS a government!?!?!?!
And yes, I know it says “new”...
You might try this:
I started to write down how it works, but Im 59 and I dont have enough time left. Suffice it to say that the Israeli government makes our two party system look like a model of governmental efficiency.
Hmmm...I’m sure the reasons will become apparent in the next few days...
Meanwhile in America, some conservative coalitions are not onboard with any body and effectively have no real voice in the governing system
