If the alliance of the right and left parties and the Arab party succeeds in getting the vote of confidence, the new government will be sworn in on the same day and Naftali Bennett will become the Prime Minister.
It should be noted that four elections have been held in Israel in the last two years and each time Netanyahu’s party manages to get the most votes, but failed to prove the majority needed to form a government.
