Opposition leader Isaac Herzog expressed optimism Monday that he will succeed in toppling Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government by next spring.
Herzog spoke at the last meeting of his Zionist Union faction before the Knesset begins its extended summer recess, which ends October 10. The Knesset will then begin its winter session, which will end in March.
"The government’s time is limited," Herzog said. "The [winter] session will be its last. That is our challenge as a fighting opposition to replace the government as soon as possible."
