Netanyahu calls Israeli election fraud and accuses rival of duplicity.

Benjamin Netanyahu slammed the newly formed Israeli coalition for unseating him.

Netanyahu calls Israeli election fraud

He said that new coalition came as the result of the greatest election fraud in the history of democracy.

Hours after Netanyahu’s comments, Naftali Bennett, a nationalist set to replace him as prime minister, called on Israel’s longest-serving PM not to leave “scorched earth” behind.

He urged him to accept that “people are allowed to establish a government – even if you don’t head it”.

However, Netanyahu made his sweeping accusation at a time when Israel’s domestic security chief has warned publicly about the prospect of political violence.

He said this in comments to legislators from his right-wing Likud party.

Moreover, he said that we are witnessing the greatest election fraud in the history of the country, in my opinion in the history of any democracy.

He focused his allegations on a broken campaign promise from Bennett. Naftali Bennet had pledged not to partner with left-wing, centrist and Arab parties.

On Wednesday, Bennett announced with opposition leader Yair Lapid that they had formed a governing coalition with factions from across the political spectrum following an inconclusive March 23 election, Israel’s fourth in two years.

Under a rotation deal, Bennett will serve first as prime minister. Lapid would come next.

Meanwhile, in a televised speech, Bennett called on Yariv Levin, parliament’s speaker and a Netanyahu loyalist, not to try to buy time to encourage members of the new coalition to defect.

He further said he should hold the vote on Wednesday.
