Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is racing to form a coalition government as a midnight deadline approaches. Netanyahu’s Likud won the highest number of seats—30—in a tense March election. He now has until the end of the day to cobble together 61 seats for a ruling government after losing the support of occasional ally Avigdor Lieberman. Instead, Netanyahu has to bargain with former aide Naftali Bennett. If he doesn’t form a government by the looming deadline, Israeli President Reuven Rivlin will have to appoint someone else for the task.
