Jerusalem24 -Hebrew media sources reported that Israeli right-wing figures are studying a proposal to change the method for selecting the prime minister to take place directly through the Knesset, in order to avoid going towards the fifth Knesset elections.

The Hebrew Channel ’12’,reported that the Israeli Interior Minister, the leader of the ‘Shas’ party, submitted a proposal to solve the government formation dilemma, by passing a basic law in the Knesset by a majority stipulating the election of the prime minister by direct vote through the Knesset.

While the proposal was met with approval by Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu and ‘Right’ party leader Naftali Bennett, as Netanyahu was persuaded to support the initiative after his disappointment at the possibility of forming a government within the remaining deadline, in light of his failure to win 61 seats from the Knesset.

The proposal, which will be formally presented to the Knesset today, comes in light of the efforts of the leader of “There is a future” party, Yair Lapid, to form a new government if Netanyahu fails to form it in the remaining period, and is working to obtain the support of the religious parties.
