Netanyahu heads into cabinet showdown as allies demand early Israeli elections
Sat, 17 Nov 2018 12:48:31 -0500
Netanyahu heads into cabinet showdown as allies demand early Israeli elections

Netanyahu heads into cabinet showdown as allies demand early Israeli electionsBenjamin Netanyahu faces a showdown with his coalition government partners on Sunday as he tries to stop them from forcing early elections in the wake of his unpopular decision to agree to a ceasefire with Hamas.  Three of the smaller parties in the Israeli prime minister’s coalition have demanded elections as soon as possible and want to use today’s cabinet meeting to formally agree on a date for the vote.  However, Mr Netanyahu said he wants to keep the government together and is eager to push the date of the elections off for several more months.  “Prime Minister Netanyahu stressed that it is important to make every effort to preserve the Right-wing government,” said a spokesman for his Likud party. Mr Netanyahu on Saturday said he wanted his government to see out the end of its term, blaming the centre-Right Kulanu party for the turmoil. "If the Kulanu faction doesn't bring the government down - there is a government," he said on Twitter. "All Likud members want to keep serving the country for another whole year until the end of the term in November 2019."   Education Minister Naftali Bennett demanded to be given the defence portfolio, threatening to withdraw his eight seats from Mr Netanyahu's governing coalition Credit: MENAHEM KAHANA/AFP/Getty Images He is hoping a delayed election will leave more time for the Right-wing voters of his base to forget about last week’s ceasefire agreement with Hamas to stop fighting in Gaza.   Many Israelis on the Right wanted to see Israeli forces move more aggressively against the Islamist militants, who fired around 460 rockets and mortars into southern Israel during the fighting.  Mr Netanyahu’s defence minister resigned over the ceasefire and civilians in the southern city of Sderot, which is regularly targeted by Hamas rockets, burned tyres and blocked streets in protest. If the prime minister holds his ground and refuses to grant elections then coalition party leaders face a choice: they can stay in the government and allow Mr Netanyahu to limp on or leave the government and bring the coalition crashing down.  The smaller parties may be loathe to bring down the government because it will allow Mr Netanyahu to present himself as a responsible leader who tried to maintain Israel’s stability while other parties clamored for elections.  Profile | Benjamin Netanyahu The two sides may reach a compromise where Mr Netanyahu agrees to elections but on a longer timetable, possibly with elections in late March, which favours his own political interests.   Mr Netanyahu goes into the cabinet facing off against three of his own ministers. His main irritant is Naftali Bennett, the 46-year-old education minister and leader of the Right-wing Jewish Home party.  Mr Bennet, who was once Mr Netanyahu’s chief of staff, is trying chip away Right-wing voters from the Likud by promising a tougher line against Hamas.  The two men have a frosty personal relationship, with Mr Netanyahu’s allies accusing Mr Bennett of leaking material from cabinet meetings to undermine the prime minister.  Despite the chaos in the coalition and the corruption scandal swirling around him and his wife, Mr Netanyahu appears well placed to win an election and form a new Right-wing government.  A poll for Israel’s Channel 2 found that Mr Netanyahu’s Likud would win 29 seats in an election, making it by far the biggest party. The centrist Yesh Atid party would take 18 seats while the centre-Left Zionist Union would win only 11.  Mr Netanyahu has been prime minister since 2009 and served a brief three-year stint as prime minister in the late 1990s. If he is still prime minister in July next year, he will have overtaken David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, as the longest-serving leader of Israel.  The current government could continue serving until November 2019 but Israel’s coalition governments rarely serve out their full four-year terms.  The current coalition has 61 seats in the 120 parliament, known as the Knesset. One of Mr Netanyahu’s Likud MPs, Oren Hazan, was suspended for six weeks this week after insulting a defence ministry official.  Mr Hazan, who previously embarrassed the prime minister by taking a selfie with Donald Trump, can still vote but is barred from any other parliamentary activity. His suspension gives Mr Netanyahu’s weakened government even less room for manoeuvre.

Macron and Merkel unite in struggle for Europe

Macron and Merkel unite in struggle for EuropeBeleaguered at home, belittled abroad, Emmanuel Macron of France and Germany's Angela Merkel will use a Berlin meeting on Sunday to bolster their alliance as champions of a united Europe fraught with resurgent nationalism. After weeks of stalemate on issues such as eurozone reforms and how to get internet giants to pay more tax, the French president and German chancellor have recently gone out of their way to demonstrate unity and common purpose. Macron gave Merkel pride of place last weekend during commemorations marking the end of World War I where he spoke out against nationalism -- a message he is likely to hammer home again Sunday when addressing Germany's parliament as part of ceremonies to commemorate victims of war.

Britain to push U.N. Security Council to back humanitarian truce in Yemen

Britain to push U.N. Security Council to back humanitarian truce in YemenBritish U.N. Ambassador Karen Pierce said she would give the 15-member council a draft resolution on Monday that would enshrine five requests made by U.N. aid chief Mark Lowcock, one of which was for a truce around infrastructure and facilities on which the aid operation and commercial importers rely. Pierce said the aim of the resolution would be to put Lowcock's call "into practice." She gave no timeline for when the draft resolution could be put to a vote. The remaining four requests were for protection of the supply of food and essential goods, a larger, faster injection of foreign exchange into the economy through the central bank, increased humanitarian funding and support, and for the warring parties to engage in peace talks.

Airbnb says quarterly revenue topped $1 bn

Airbnb says quarterly revenue topped $1 bnAirbnb said Friday it took in more than a billion dollars in revenue in the past three months, calling it the best quarter ever for the home-sharing giant as it readies a stock market offering.

May's Brexit deal won't get through parliament: former Brexit sec

May's Brexit deal won't get through parliament: former Brexit secLONDON (Reuters) - British Prime Minister Theresa May's draft European Union divorce deal will not get the approval of the UK parliament, former Brexit Secretary David Davis said on Friday. "What's more likely to happen than a confidence vote (in May) is this deal will be rejected by the House of Commons... There's no way I can see it getting through," Davis told CNBC. "Therefore she'll have to come up with another alternative." Davis resigned as Brexit secretary in July in protest at May's plans for a long-term relationship with the bloc.
