President to consult with parties over 2 days, beginning with largest

President Reuven Rivlin will meet with the five largest parties on Sunday afternoon — Blue and White, Likud, Joint List, Shas, and Yisrael Beytenu — for consultations on who should be appointed to form the next coalition.

The meeting will continue on Monday afternoon, with United Torah Judaism, Yamina, Labor-Gesher, and Democratic Union.

The consultations will be broadcast live.

Israel’s president has the power to appoint one of the 120 MKs elected on Tuesday as the next prime minister of Israel. The designated lawmaker must then cobble together a coalition that wins the support of a majority of Knesset members.
