Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hopes to inform his Likud ministers which portfolios they will receive late Wednesday night in an effort to swear-in his cabinet Thursday, sources close to him said Tuesday night.

Marathon Knesset deliberations on a controversial bill enabling expanding the cabinet continued Tuesday night after MKs bickered all night Monday until the bill passed in committee at 6:30 a.m. Tuesday morning.

The debate is set to continue Wednesday morning, culminating in votes on the bill's final readings late Wednesday night. Only after that, will Netanyahu start meeting with his ministers.
