The thirty-sixth government of Israel was installed on June 13, 2021.
The Bennett-Lapid Government is an eight-party coalition with a range of political views from right to left. These parties united with one main goal: sending Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (HaLikud) into the opposition.
Just 61 members of the 24th Knesset were supporting this government. This was only one over half the total of 120 members.
Because the number of supporting Knesset members fell under 60 in June 2022, the government has been caretaking from July 1, 2022 to December 29, 2022.
The following eight parties are participating:
|Party||Seats||Name (in English)||Leader|
|Yesh Atid||17||"There is a Future"||Yair Lapid|
|Kahol Lavan (Hosen L'Yisrael)||8||"Blue and White" ("Israel Resilience")||Benny Gantz|
|Yisrael Beiteinu||7||"Israel is Our Home"||Avigdor Lieberman|
|Yamina (HaYamin HeHadash)||6 ||"Rightwards" ("The New Right")||Naftali Bennett|
|Tikva Hadasha||6||"A New Hope"||Gideon Sa'ar|
|Ra'am||4||"United Arab List"||Mansour Abbas|
