In a remarkable step, the Israeli opposition leader announced Yair Lapid -Monday- via the X platform, his party’s readiness.”There is a futureTo vote in favor of changing the government to be headed by Yuli Edelstein of the Likud Party Benny Gantz Or Gadi Eisenkot, both from the opposition “National Unity” party.
The Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth said on Tuesday that those around Netanyahu fear growing frustration among Likud members and a joint move with the opposition to oust him.
She pointed out that in recent days, the fears surrounding Netanyahu of a rebellion in Likud and a joint move with opposition factions to oust him in the current Knesset seemed very clear.
The newspaper added that recently, criticism of the work of the party in particular and the coalition (i.e. the government) in general by Likud members has increased, and at the same time attempts to lead a move against Netanyahu are also increasing.
She said that Netanyahu is trying to return to the Knesset the ministers who resigned under Norwegian law, under the pretext of closing non-essential ministries, as part of the containment battle he is going through.
The Norwegian law is a law in force in the Norwegian Parliament and adopted by Israel. Under this law, the representative who obtains a ministerial portfolio gives up his seat in the Knesset to another from the party who ran in the elections and was unable to win a seat, but the representative retains his right to return to the Knesset at the expense of The replacement person, if he resigns from the government.
The newspaper drew attention to Lapid’s statements – yesterday, Monday – on the X platform, that Israel needs a different government and a different prime minister.
Lapid also called on the ministers of the “camp” party in the emergency government to withdraw from Netanyahu's government as a rescue government for Netanyahu and not for Israel, according to him.
Public opinion polls in recent weeks have shown a decline in the position of the Likud Party, while Israeli analysts attribute this to the decline in the popularity of Netanyahu himself.
There are estimates that elections will be held in Israel after the end of the war on Gaza, but the Israeli opposition parties are calling for holding elections or changing the government even before the end of the war.
