The Israeli parliament rejects a bill to prevent Netanyahu from forming a new government

The Israeli parliament this Wednesday rejected a bill banning an accused parliamentarian from forming a government, which would fully affect current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is charged with corruption, should he seek to recruit a new executive.

The draft submitted by opposition leader Yesh Atid, Yair Lapid, received 37 yes-votes and 53 no-votes in a vote in which the parliamentarians of the opposition blue and white – which Lapid previously belonged to and which they now belong to the ruling coalition – were absent.

Netanyahu has indicted the proposal after voting, stressing that “the only place these laws are passed is in dictatorships such as Iran and North Korea.” “Lapid, a thousand masks wouldn’t help him hide his dictatorship,” he added.
