New Israeli government – level 3

23-06-2021 15:00

Benjamin Netanyahu has lost his 12-year hold on power in Israel after its parliament voted in a new coalition government.

Right-wing nationalist Naftali Bennet has been sworn as a prime minister, leading a ´government of change´. He´ll lead an unprecedented coalition of parties, which was approved with a thin majority of 60-59, until 2023 when centrist Yeshi Atid will take over.

The new government covers political differences, and the diverse group has eight parties with deep ideological differences.

Anti-Netanyahu demonstrators gathered outside parliament in Jerusalem for the vote, and after the approval of the new government, the city erupted in celebrations.

Difficult words: unprecedented (never done or known before), centrist (a person who holds moderate political views), ideological (relating to certain ideas or beliefs).
