Outgoing Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu mistakenly sat on the Prime Minister’s chair in parliament after the swearing-in of the new government on Sunday.

Outgoing Knesset speaker Yariv Levin asked him to move to the chair of the head of the opposition instead.

The incident came after Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, narrowly approved a new coalition government led by Naftali Bennett , ending Netanyahu’s historic 12-year rule.

Netanyahu now serves as the opposition leader.
