Knesset heads back to work after six months

The Knesset is to return to regular activity Monday, more than six months after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fired then-ministers Tzipi Livni and Yair Lapid, kicking off this year’s election.

The 20th Knesset was sworn in on March 31, but immediately adjourned for the Passover recess. On Monday, the Knesset will begin its summer session, which is usually three months long.

However, the Knesset’s legislative work will not begin in earnest until the new government is sworn in and committee chairmen are appointed, which is likely to happen next week.
