Daily Briefing Jun 22: Does Netanyahu have tricks up his sleeve to form a gov’t now?

Welcome to The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday.

Political correspondent Tal Schneider and religion correspondent Judah Ari Gross join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on this politically driven episode.

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s coalition held the first in a series of votes for its own dissolution this morning. But are elections now a 100% reality? Could former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu still somehow scrape together a coalition from the existing Knesset?

Schneider gives us a quick breakdown of the procedural process that began today to dissolve the Knesset.

We talk polling. Who is in and who is out?

Gross shares what he’s hearing from the ultra-Orthodox parties that have been loyal to Netanyahu this past year.

And finally, Sephardic Chief Rabbi Yitzhak Yosef directed remarks against MK Itamar Ben Gvir in a recent sermon. Why?

Discussed articles include:

Coalition to begin process of dissolving Knesset, heralding return to upheaval

Polls point to return of dreaded deadlock in next elections, unless alliances shift

A year out of power, Haredim hail government’s downfall, credit divine intervention

Chief rabbi slams ‘fool’ Ben Gvir for Temple Mount visits that ‘stir up the winds’
