Daily Briefing Sept. 22 – How the new government is faring in first 100 days

Political correspondent Tal Schneider and senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur discuss the successes and challenges of the Bennett-Lapid coalition as it passes the 100-day mark

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 senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur are on today’s podcast, with host Jessica Steinberg.

The two reporters discuss the first 100 days of the Bennett-Lapid government, which was inaugurated in June.

While the first months of a new government are usually considered a grace period, this government has had to work quickly as it seeks to pass the delayed budget and establish itself, breaking new ground, Rettig Gur points out.

Schneider comments on the pressure from former prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his Likud party, the largest political party in the Knesset, which is doing its best to upset and dismantle the wafer-thin coalition.
