In another embarrassment to the barely surviving coalition, the opposition wins another vote in the Knesset 51-50.

The legislation sponsored by Likud MK Galit Distel Atbaryan would lower tax rates on some individuals and companies. The bill is based in part on Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s “Singapore Plan,” though Bennett voted against the legislation since it was put forth by the opposition.

The bill passes a first reading, and would need two more to become law, which is not considered likely to happen as the Knesset appears close to dispersal.
