    Israel’s new prime minister, Naftali Bennett, has promised to unite a nation frayed by years of political stalemate.

    The right-wing nationalist will lead an unprecedented coalition of parties that won a confidence vote by a razor-thin margin of just one seat on Sunday.

    He succeeds Benjamin Netanyahu, who was forced out of office after 12 years.

    Mr Bennett, the leader of Yamina party, will be prime minister until September 2023 as part of a power-sharing deal.

    He will then hand power over to Yair Lapid, head of the centrist Yesh Atid party, for a further two years.
