Benjamin Netanyahu and his cabinet of 30 ministers are convening at the President’s Residence for a traditional photo with President Isaac Herzog to mark the new government being formed.

Netanyahu grins from ear to ear while Herzog keeps a poker face, possibly to avoid projecting a sense of frivolity in the face of what is being called the most hard-right government in the nation’s history, with plans for far-reaching moves that critics say will damage Israel’s democracy and reverse rights for minority groups.

Speaking to the press as he leaves, Netanyahu says only that he will be a prime minister “for all Israeli citizens.”
