  • The agreement does not account for a full and final new government in Israel

JERUSALEM: Israeli Prime Minister-designate Benjamin Netanyahu’s conservative Likud party signed its first coalition deal with the far-right Jewish Power party, Likud said in a statement on Friday.

The agreement does not account for a full and final new government in Israel but gives ultranationalist Itamar Ben-Gvir the police ministry and a seat in the security cabinet.
