Israeli Prime Minister, Yair Lapid concedes defeat to Netanyahu


 

Israeli Prime Minister, Yair Lapid, has just conceded the election, thus recognizing former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as his successor.

A statement from Lapid’s office said he has called Netanyahu to congratulate him.

Lapid told Netanyahu that he has given instructions to his office to make adequate arrangements for the transition of power.

“The state of Israel comes before any political consideration.

“I wish Netanyahu success, for the sake of the people of Israel and the State of Israel”

Netanyahu’s victory will shock most Palestinians and some Arab states, who believe his government is likely to continue Israeli expansion activity on the West Bank.
