With the Likud-Beitaynu alliance (31 seats) and Benjamin Netanyahu as Prime Minister, this four party, 68 seat coalition includes two fresh faces, Yair Lapid’s Yesh Atid party (19 seats) and Naftali Bennett’s Jewish Home Party (12 seats). Also included is Tzipi Livni’s Hatanuah Party ( 6 seats). In the January 2013 elections that yield this coalition, the electorate favors a government where social and economic issues will be as important as pressing national security matters.
