by News Editor
Jerusalem Post – Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will receive an endorsement from 80 MK-elects over the next two days as the 12 factions in the incoming Knesset make their recommendations to President Shimon Peres.
Peres will receive the official of last Tuesday’s election on Wednesday evening from the head of the Central Elections Committee, Justice Elyakim Rubinstein. The president will receive delegations on Wednesday night from the two largest Knesset factions, Likud Beytenu and Yesh Atid. He will hold consultations with the remaining 10 factions from the largest to the smallest on Thursday and most likely formally grant Netanyahu the right to form the government on Friday.
