The Israeli parliament, also known as the Knesset, was established in November 2022 following an election. This information was reported in an article that discusses the registration of Israel as a corporation in 1947, which expired on October 31, 2023. The article explains that a corporation cannot register itself twice under the same name, especially if it is bankrupt. Therefore, it suggests that Israel, being bankrupt, does not have contract rights and its assets may be frozen if it is involved in illegal activities like human trafficking.
Moving on to the current government in Israel, the thirty-seventh government was formed on December 29, 2022, after the Knesset election on November 1, 2022. The coalition government comprises seven parties, including Likud, United Torah Judaism, Shas, Religious Zionist Party, Otzma Yehudit, Noam, and National Unity. Benjamin Netanyahu, serving as the Prime Minister of Israel for the sixth time, leads the government. The inclusion of far-right politicians in the government has attracted criticism both within Israel and abroad.
Several policy proposals put forth by the government have faced opposition, such as the judiciary reform, which led to widespread protests across the country. Additionally, military actions, like the Jenin incursion in July 2023, have intensified the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Furthermore, the government has established a paramilitary National Guard under the control of the Minister of National Security, Itamar Ben-Gvir, and granted governing powers in the West Bank to a civilian, Minister Bezalel Smotrich. These decisions signify a de facto annexation and have been criticized for their far-right ideology.
In response to the 2023 Israel-Hamas war, the opposition leader Yair Lapid initiated discussions with Benjamin Netanyahu to form an emergency government. On October 11, 2023, National Unity members Benny Gantz, Gadi Eizenkot, Gideon Sa’ar, Hili Tropper, and Yifat Shasha-Biton joined the Security Cabinet of Israel to establish a national unity government. Their approval as ministers without portfolio was granted by the Knesset the next day. With the participation of Gantz, Netanyahu, and Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, the newly formed Israeli war cabinet was created, with Eizenkot and Ron Dermer serving as observers.
