Naftali Bennett sworn in as Israel's new Prime Minister, ending Netanyahu's 12-year rule

Naftali Bennett was on Sunday sworn in as Israel’s new Prime Minister, ousting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from power after an uninterrupted 12 years at the helm of affairs. Bennett, the 49-year-old leader of the right-wing Yamina party, took oath of office after parliament voted on Sunday on the new government led by him. The new government has 27 ministers, nine of them women. The new government – an unprecedented coalition of ideologically divergent political parties drawn from the Right, the Left and the Centre, along with an Arab party – has a razor-thin majority in a 120-member house.
