Israel's president formally nominates Netanyahu as PM

 

Israels president on Wednesday formally nominated Benjamin Netanyahu for a fourth consecutive term as prime minister, officially launching a process that is expected to result in a new government dominated by religious and nationalist parties in the coming weeks.

In one of the presidents few non-ceremonial roles, President Reuven Rivlin tasked Netanyahu with assembling a governing coalition within 42 days.

The move was widely expected after Netanyahus Likud party and its right-wing allies captured a majority of seats in parliamentary elections last week.
