Looking more and more likely.

Notice he is going with the "biggest fraud ever" line.  Lulz.

Replaced by someone far-right

It looks like he's toast.

Yesh Atid's leader Yair Lapid announced Wednesday night that he has managed to form a coalition after a series of back-to-back meetings with the leaders of the anti-Netanyahu camp in the Knesset.

Lapid has formally informed President Reuven Rivlin of his success, saying that "The government will do everything it can in order to unite and unify all sections of Israeli society."

"I am honored to inform you that I have managed to form a government. The government will be a rotation government, in accordance with clause 13a in the Basic Law on the Government. I will lead it with MK Naftali Bennett who will be the first to serve as prime minister," Lapid said.

"I give you my word that this government will work in the service of all of Israel's citizens, those that voted for it and those that did not. It will respect its opponents, and will do everything it can to unify and unite all parts of Israeli society," Lapid told President Rivlin.

Lapid's coalition is composed of Yesh Atid, Yamina, Kahol Lavan, New Hope, Labor, Yisrael Beiteinu, Meretz and United Arab List.

Not exactly. The coalition bringing Bibi down spans the entire political spectrum. Even includes the coalition of Arab parties. They have a unified objective of getting rid of him. They intend to alternate between a right wing and centrist PM.

Do these parties mainly represent geographic areas?  It's like a Cheesecake Factory menu - way too many  choices.

No not geographic. They just divide up the delegates based on the percentages received by the parties in the general election.

Agreed. The new (seemingly) boss may have a coalition of different thinking parties..  but he is still hard line. Wonder if the deals he's made with less than hard liners will hold up once he's in power.

We'll have to see. Don't seem to have a real high bar to clear given Netanyahoo's antics over the years.

Last I saw, the far-right leader will be PM for multiple straight years.

That was the agreement that Bibi came to with another party a few years ago. Then he went back on it and demanded another election to try and keep power.
