Zionist parliament dissolves and sets up fifth election in less than four years

Jerusalem: Zionist disbanded parliament on Thursday, forcing the country’s fifth election in less than four years, and Foreign Minister Yair Rapid was scheduled to take office as caretaker prime minister at midnight. After a unanimous 92-0 vote, centrist Rapid accepted Prime Minister Naftali Bennett. Naftali Bennett was responsible for the awkward eight-party coalition and was eventually revoked by its ideological division.

Rapid, whose Hungarian-born father survived the Holocaust, went to the Yadvashem Holocaust Memorial Center in Jerusalem shortly after a parliamentary vote. “Therefore, I promised her deceased father that she would always be able to keep the Zionist entity strong, protect herself, and protect her children,” said the 58-year-old woman. Said in a statement. The newly summoned elections set on November 1 show another sign that Zionist entities remain in unprecedented political predicament.

Religious nationalist Bennett said he would not challenge the vote after the lawmakers sealed his resignation and tweeted the Hebrew word “Toda” (thank you) to withdraw from politics. He later hosted Rapid for a short delivery ceremony. Former Hawkish Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will eventually gather a majority after he and his allies (far-right nationalists and ultra-Orthodox Jews) have described a “failed (coalition) experiment” on Thursday. Guaranteed. He said, “We are the only option. A strong, nationalist and responsible government.” He is being tried on suspicion of corruption.

“Deeply polarized”

Netanyahu is seen by both allies and critics as a relentless political fighter and was already campaigning on Thursday. office. Zionist Democratic Institute think tank President Johanna Presner said the Zionists, who had been forced into a fifth poll since April 2019, highlighted their “deeply polarized reality.”

He said the only solution to such “dysfunction” was “delinquent elections and constitutional reform.” The November vote will be a contest between Netanyahu and Rapid, a former television newscaster and celebrity who has surprised many since being fired as lightweight when he entered politics 10 years ago. Rapid, the architect of Benjamin Netanyahu’s miscellaneous alliance, launched in June 2021, ended Netanyahu’s 12th consecutive year of power record and passed the Zionist’s first state budget since 2018. ..

Bennett led a coalition of right-wing Rams, centrists, pigeons and Muslims. It has made history by becoming the first Arab party to support the Zionist government since the founding of the Jewish state in 1948. Although he is an Arab, he defended his decision to join the Zionist rule on Thursday. “We have succeeded in establishing our position as a political force,” Abbas said, and Ram continued to defend Arab society, with issues such as the poor living conditions of Bedouin members “not underneath.” , On the table. “

farewell address

The coalition collapsed last week after some Arab lawmakers refused to renew measures to ensure that about 475,000 Jewish settlers living on the west bank of the occupied Jordan live under Israeli law. They said it showed de facto approval of the 1955 occupation that forced the West Bank Palestinians to live under the Zionist junta. For Bennett, a strong supporter of the reconciliation, it was unbearable to allow the so-called West Bank Act to expire. If you dissolve Congress before the expiration of June 30, the bill will be temporarily renewed.

Bennett claimed that his coalition was successful in its short term, showing that ideological rivals could rule together. “No one should give up their position, but for some time it is possible and necessary to set aside the ideological debate and take care of the economy, security, and future of the Zionist entity’s citizens. “He said in a farewell greeting. Wednesday.

Bennett will remain the alternative prime minister in charge of Iran’s policy, as the world’s major powers are taking steps to revive the deadlocked negotiations on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program. Zionist organizations oppose the restoration of the 2015 agreement to ease sanctions on the enemy in exchange for restrictions on nuclear programs. Rapid retains the title of his foreign minister while serving as the 14th prime minister of Israel. You will notice that he is under an early microscope. US President Joe Biden will arrive in Jerusalem two weeks later. – AFP
