Israeli president tasks Netanyahu with forming new government

Israel’s president on Wednesday nominated PM Benjamin Netanyahu to head the next government, after he won the backing of a majority of members of parliament following recent elections. Netanyahu has 28 days, with a two-week extension if needed, to complete the task. Netanyahu plans to build a coalition with five far-right, right-wing and ultra-Orthodox Jewish parties.
