  • Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is likely to be ousted as opposition leader Yair Lapid notified the President that he had put together a diverse coalition of parties. If ratified by parliament the plan would topple Netanyahu, who’s been in power for 15 of the past 25 years. Under the agreement, Yamina Party’s Naftali Bennett would be the Prime Minister for the first two years and he would hand over power to Yair Lapid. They completed the deal late Wednesday, just a half hour before a midnight deadline, paving the way to formally oust Netanyahu in the coming days. Watch the full video for all the details.
