Netanyahu wants cabinet sworn in by Thursday

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hopes to inform his Likud ministers which portfolios they will receive late on Wednesday night in an effort to swear in his cabinet the next day, sources close to him said on Tuesday night.

Marathon Knesset deliberations on a bill to enable expanding the cabinet continued into the night on Tuesday after MKs bickered through Monday night until the bill passed in committee at 6:30 a.m. on Tuesday.

The debate will continue on Wednesday morning, culminating in votes on the bill’s final readings late that night.
