The appointment of MK Matan Kahana as Minister of Religion was not approved early Tuesday morning after a majority vote was not obtained in the Knesset plenum. The appointment would have stabilized Israel's coalition government against the opposition, as the two are currently deadlocked at 60 Knesset seats each. 55 MKs voted in favor of Kahana's appointment and 55 MKs, including MK Idit Silman, voted against. Silman left Israel's coalition government in April – a move that threatened to bring down the government entirely, as a government can technically continue on with a deadlocked 60-60 Knesset, though will find it practically impossible to get anything done and will eventually fail.
