New Israel government wins majority vote, ending Netanyahu tenure

Global News published this video item, entitled “New Israel government wins majority vote, ending Netanyahu tenure” – below is their description.

Benjamin Netanyahu’s 12-year run as Israel’s prime minister ended on Sunday, with parliament approving a new “government of change” led by nationalist Naftali Bennett.

In a raucous session where Netanyahu’s right-wing and ultra-Orthodox supporters shouted “shame” and “liar” at Bennett, parliament voted confidence in his new administration by a razor-thin 60-59 majority.

Heading into opposition, Netanyahu, the most dominant Israeli politician of his generation, pledged he would soon return to power.

A former defence minister and a high-tech millionaire, Bennett was due to be sworn in shortly after the vote. His alliance includes for the first time in Israel’s history a party that represents its 21 per cent Arab minority.

The new government was formed after an inconclusive March 23 election, and plans largely to avoid sweeping moves on hot-button international issues such as policy toward Palestinians, and to focus on domestic reforms.
