Parliament Moves Toward Approving Bill to Protect Netanyahu-Gantz Power Share

The Israeli parliament is prepared to pass legislation that will protect Binyamin Netanyahu and Benny Gantz from premature removal from their respective 18-month power shares when the unity government is finally approved. Left-wing newspaper Haaretz has run a story about a tactical error committed by the bill’s drafter, which would actually protect Netanyahu from losing his ruling position. The legislation forbids removal of the prime minister during his 18-month turn to hold power regardless of who the PM is. If it passes, those dreaming of beginning the term with a vote to dethrone Netanyahu will be bitterly disappointed.
