Vote on new Knesset speaker and new government slated for Monday

The parties of the new coalition call to schedule the planned Knesset votes on the parliament’s new speaker and the new government for Monday.

The petition names Yesh Atid’s Mickey Levy, a former Jerusalem police chief, as the new coalition’s choice for the next speaker amid fears Likud’s Yariv Levin was planning to delay the vote officially forming the new coalition as Likud continues its efforts to recruit defectors.

The Knesset plenum traditionally meets for votes on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays each week.
