The ghost of a new election moves away from Israel after a marathon vote in parliament that served to approve the 2021 budgets. For the first time in three and a half years, an Israeli government has managed to carry out the accounts and did so without having to wait for the November 14 deadline.

“This is the most important moment since the government was formed,” confessed the prime minister. Naftali Bennet, which in this way passes the first great test since it managed to unite the efforts of eight parties of very different profiles to end the era of Benjamin Netanyahu. «After years of chaos, we have formed a Government, we have overcome

the delta variant of the coronavirus and now, thank God, we have approved a budget for Israel, “declared an exultant Bennet before the camera at the end of a session that ended at 5.30 in the morning.

The accounts were approved with 61 votes in favor and 59 against and it is expected that in the next few hours the same will happen with the budget for the year 2022. “Today is a day of celebration for the State of Israel,” tweeted a prime minister to whom Netanyahu, who during the previous days tried for all the media hinder the approval of the accounts, accused of “liar” and “irresponsible.”

The new budget is “the most social in the history of the country”, according to the head of Economy, Avigdor Lieberman. The biggest changes to the Likud-era budgets come in education, transportation and health. The support of the Islamists of Raam to the Government has been translated into a special allocation of 8,000 million euros dedicated for five years to improve the socio-economic conditions of the Palestinian population of Israel.
