On the 67th anniversary of Israel’s founding, Israel swears in its 34th government, headed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. With the narrowest of margins, 61 for and 59 against, Netanyahu’s fourth government receives its needed vote of confidence. The government coalition is dominated by religious and right of center parties, and the new Kulanu Party that is focused on social justice issues. Netanyahu keeps several portfolios for himself, hoping to attract current opposition parties and personalities to join the coalition.
