A new bill that would prevent anyone under a serious indictment from forming a government, was published by Justice Minister Gideon Sa'ar on Tuesday. According to the bill, which would take effect with the next Knesset, opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu could not be tasked by the president with building a coalition. Netanyahu, or anyone else indicted for a crime that carries a three-year sentence, also could not serve as an alternate prime minister. However, there is a loophole in the bill that could allow Netanyahu to overturn it with the support of 61 MKs and then form a government. Interior Minister Ayelet Shaked (Yamina) has expressed that she opposes the bill, while the view of Prime Minister Naftali Bennett remains unclear.
