Prime Minister Naftali Bennett promises that the 2022 budget will pass in the Knesset soon after a short delay.
“I know you’re tired, stay strong, the budget will pass,” Bennett says in a short statement from the Knesset.
MKs are voting now on the 2022 budget, only hours after the 2021 budget passed in a narrow vote in the early hours of this morning. An accidental vote on one of the 2022 budget’s hundreds of sections will likely delay the full proceedings by several hours.
“The moment that the budget passes, the State of Israel will enter a different era,” says Bennett. “The government is stable, and we know exactly where to lead the country.”
