Rivlin to Edelstein: For the first time, none able to form govt

For the first time in Israeli history no candidate had been able to form a government, President Reuven Rivlin will tell Knesset Speaker Yuli-Yoel Edelstein on Thursday, a press release on behalf of the president’s office.
Starting from Thursday, the Knesset will have 21 days during which 61 MKs may suggest one person will form a government.
Should no such person be agreed upon, the Knesset will dissolve and elections will be held.
These will be Israel’s third elections during one year.
