Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to form a government, after which his Likud party will have to play the role of opposition. According to news agencies, Netanyahu was given a deadline to form a government after the fourth election in two years in Israel, which ended on Tuesday night and could not form a government. With the passage of time, President Reuven Rivlin can now delegate the task of forming a government to another member of the Israeli parliament. The Likud party has been in power in Israel for 12 years and will now have to face the possibility of becoming an opposition. Analysts say President Reuven Rivlin could give Naftali Bennett, a former ally of Netanyahu, a chance to form a new government. Naftali Bennett is the leader of the Yamina party, a small right-wing party. Remember that Israel has been in a political stalemate for a long time. There have been four general elections in two years, but the people have not given a clear majority to any party and it is becoming difficult for them to form a stable coalition government. If a member of parliament fails to form a new government, elections will be held for the fifth time.
