Thirty-sixth government of Israel, June 2021 (AVO 5997).jpg

The thirty-sixth government of Israel was installed on June 13, 2021.

The Prime Minister is Naftali Bennett (HaYamin HeHadash and Yamina). In two years Yair Lapid (Yesh Atid) will replace him.

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 are supporting this government. This is only one over half the total of 120 members.

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
HaAvoda 7 "Labor" Merav Michaeli
Yisrael Beiteinu 7 "Israel is Our Home" Avigdor Lieberman
Yamina (HaYamin HeHadash) 6 [1] "Rightwards" ("The New Right") Naftali Bennett
Tikva Hadasha 6 "A New Hope" Gideon Sa'ar
Meretz 6 "Vigour" Nitzan Horowitz
Ra'am 4 "United Arab List" Mansour Abbas
