Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “New Israeli PM Naftali Bennett Meets Staff at New Office in Jerusalem” – below is their description.
Israel’s new prime minister met his staff on Monday, while his new governing coalition promised to reach out to neglected foreign allies as well as to heal divisiveness at home after securing a razor-thin margin to oust Benjamin Netanyahu.
But the long-time leader showed no signs of backing down, vowing Monday to depose his rivals and saying he was cheated out of power.
Newly minted Prime Minister Naftali Bennett held a brief handover meeting in the afternoon with his predecessor, but without the formal ceremony that traditionally accompanies a change in government – a sign of Netanyahu’s lingering anger and hostility toward the new government.
Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, narrowly approved the new Bennett-led coalition government on Sunday, ending Netanyahu’s historic 12-year rule.
Bennett now presides over a diverse and fragile coalition comprised of eight small and midsize parties with deep ideological differences – but promised to try to heal the divided nation.
