Netanyahu begins first-ever PM’s Question Time in Knesset

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu begins taking questions from lawmakers in the Knesset plenum, as part of the new Question Time format introduced in Israel’s parliament for the first time this term.

The prime minister will answer questions for one hour and forty minutes (the forty minutes added for the additional portfolios he holds as foreign, communications, economy, and regional cooperation minister). Three-quarters of the questions will come from the opposition.

This is the first time the prime minister will be grilled in the plenum as part of the new format.
