Daily Briefing Nov. 9: Netanyahu’s new term has looming legal conflict of interest

Zman Yisrael editor Biranit Goren on incoming PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s radical coalition agreement plan; political correspondent Carrie Keller-Lynn on motivations of far-right vote

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.

Zman Yisrael editor Biranit Goren and political correspondent Carrie Keller-Lynn join host Amanda Borschel-Dan on today’s episode.

Today, President Isaac Herzog begins formal consultations with members of all the factions that were voted into the next Knesset on who should assemble and lead the next government. Keller-Lynn takes us through the procedure.

Next, we hear about incoming prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s revolutionary idea to sign a single coalition agreement for all parties.

Goren explains a probable and looming legal conflict of interest with Netanyahu as he resumes the role of prime minister.

Finally, Keller-Lynn addresses the motivations behind the varied group of people who voted for the parties led by MKs Bezalel Smotrich and Itamar Ben Gvir.

Discussed articles include:
