Government survives its first no-confidence vote

The ministers of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s new government will not even go to the President’s Residence for their ceremonial photograph until Tuesday, but they already had to survive their first vote of no-confidence in them Monday at the Knesset.

The no-confidence motion, proposed by Yesh Atid, fell by a 59-56 vote. It said the government should be dissolved because it will not keep Netanyahu’s promise to implement within five years the proposals of a government-appointed anti-poverty committee that was led by Eli Alalouf, who has since been elected to Knesset with Kulanu.
