After three grueling elections in one year, Israel has formed a new government. On April 20, 2020, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his former political rival, Blue and White’s Benny Gantz, agreed to form a national unity government in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic. Under the new agreement, Netanyahu will serve as Prime Minister for 18 months, after which time he will be succeeded by Gantz, who, in the meantime, will serve as Israel’s Defense Minister.
