Rivlin to hold talks with party heads next Monday, task PM candidate by Wednesday

President Reuven Rivlin’s official residence confirms that the round of talks with party leaders will start next Monday, April 5, and that the person best positioned to become prime minister will be tasked with forming a government by Wednesday, April 7.

The residence sent official letters on the matter to all parties elected to the Knesset in last week’s election.

“As happened for the first time in the 2019 elections, the president has instructed that his meetings with the various parties should be broadcast live on all media, in order to make the process transparent to all Israeli citizens,” a statement says.

Another noteworthy event that happens on April 5 is the renewal of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s corruption trial.
