Prime minister-designate Benjamin Netanyahu is on the phone with President Isaac Herzog to inform him that he has succeeded in forming a coalition, with less than 30 minutes remaining before the midnight deadline, Channel 12 reports.

Netanyahu must now inform Knesset Speaker Yariv Levin that he has mustered a majority, and Levin will formally tell the Knesset on Monday, December 26, at parliament’s next legislative session.

The prime minister-designate then has another week, until January 2, to actually get his coalition sworn in.
