Likud’s final term
Through his failings, Netanyahu is likely to bring this chapter in Israeli governance to an end.
Yesh Atid party leader Yair Lapid and Naftali Bennett, who heads Habayit Hayehudi, have recommended that President Shimon Peres call upon Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to form the next government, following last week’s election. Both of them are already planning, however, to inherit Netanyahu’s Likud party supporters when elections are next held. And that could happen.
