Israel's Netanyahu in key talks to save coalition government

The Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu opposed calls for snapbacks on Sunday, saying that elections would now be “unnecessary and incorrect” before calling in-depth talks to keep his challenging coalition together.

Netanyahu’s highest coalition was thrown into crisis Wednesday after Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman resigned from a controversial Gaza violent outbreak, leading to speculation about whether early elections have become inevitable.

Following Lieberman’s revocation together with his Yisrael Beitenu party, the Netanyahu government was quarreled to a majority in Parliament with 120 seats.

Important coalition partners say it is not possible to work until November 2019.

Netanyahu, who has attempted to delay the election, made its case at the start of a school meeting on Sunday.

“During a period of security sensitivity, it is unnecessary and wrong to go to elections,” Netanyahu said.

Neta Nyahu planned to meet Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon, whose centrally-held Kulanu party holds 10 seats, at 6:30 pm (1630 GMT) on Sunday for what he called a “last attempt” to hold the government together.

In a sign of a possible agreement drawn up, a spokesman for Netanyahus Likud party said the premiere would “decide the appointment of ministers in the coming days” but left no further details.

Meanwhile, Netanyahu attempted to present business activities as usual on the way to a meeting with the military chief of staff, his incoming successor and the head of the internal security agency Shin Bet, said Likud’s spokesman.

– “Sinless to Continue” –

Kahlon has said he does not think it is possible to continue with the existing coalition.

“About (Netanyahu) pulls a rabbit out of his hat, we see it,” said the finance minister to Israeli television Saturday. “Meanwhile, I do not see a rabbit or a hat.”

Minister of Education, Naftali Bennett, of the right-wing Jewish Home Party, who holds eight seats in parliament, has called for the defense portfolio as a way of holding the government together.

Netanyahu says he will take it at least temporarily rather than leave the key ministry to one of his chief masters.

On Saturday, Bennett told Israeli television that Lieberman had “collapsed the government”.

“There is no more government and we are heading towards elections,” he said.

Bennett refused to comment on journalists when he entered Sunday Sunday, but Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked from his Jewish hometown said in a statement that Netanyahu met Bennett on Friday, but conflicting reports arose from the discussions.

A source near Bennett said the two had agreed that “it would be the only motivation” to hold the government together. would be meaningless to continue with the same coalition.

Within a few minutes, a statement from Netanyahus Likud said that it was wrong.

The crisis began with Lieberman’s departure over the violence that ended the worst escalation between Israel and

– Gaza escalation –

Lieberman noticed the violence “surrender to terror” and struck Netanyahu’s recent decision to allow Qatar to send millions of dollars in support of the blocked Palestinian enclave [19659024] Israeli residents in southern communities who suffered from rage from Gaza last week also have protested and demanded tough action against Hamas, with which Israel has fought three war since 2008.

A vote published after the violence found 74 percent of respondents were unhappy with Netanyahu’s handling of escalation with Gaza and its Islamist ruler Hamas, even though also showed that his party would still win the most ocean ts.

It has long been speculation that the prime minister can make a choice before they expire in November 2019, especially when the police have recommended charges against him in two corruption probes.

The Advocate General is expected to decide in the coming months whether he should raise charges against him and some analysts believe he would be better placed to fight them with a new election mandate.

But Netanyahu would like to make such a move at the most advantageous time and probably not focusing on public attention on the crime of violence in Gaza and wiping out his reputation as Israel’s “Mr. Security”, as he has often been dubbed.

“It’s the main reason that Netanyahu does not want to go to the election right now,” says Reuven Hazan from the political department of the Hebrew University.

“He wants to calm the situation in Gaza before joining a election campaign.”
