(Worthy News) - Coalition negotiating teams from Likud and Blue and White will officially begin talks on forming a new government on Friday morning, amid low expectations on both sides.

Rivlin’s idea is to pass a law enabling a prime minister to suspend himself indefinitely to deal with an indictment and a bolstered vice prime minister to run the country until the prime minister is cleared of charges. [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More...) ]
