RAMALLAH, June 13 (KUNA) — Israel’s parliament (the Knesset) voted to swear in a new government Sunday, ending the historic 12-year rule of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Far-right politician Naftali Bennett, who once worked for Netanyahu, becomes Israel’s new prime minister for two years in a coalition agreement that includes eight separate parties and is led by Bennett and centrist Yair Lapid. Lapid will serve as foreign minister and become prime minister after Bennett’s two-year stint. The change came by the slimmest of margins: 60-59, with one member abstaining. In his speech, Bennett echoed Netanyahu’s stance on the Iran nuclear agreement, calling its renewal a mistake. “Israel will not allow Iran to acquire nuclear weapons,” he said.
