Thirty-sixth government of Israel

Israeli coalition government formed in 2021

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

Prime Minister is Yair Lapid (Yesh Atid) after Naftali Bennett resigned in June 2022. Bennett later became Alternate Prime Minister of Israel.

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 were supporting this government. This was only one over half the total of 120 members.

Because the number of supporting Knesset members fell under 60 in June 2022, the government has been caretaking from July 1, 2022 to December 29, 2022.

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
