STEPANAKERT, MAY 13,  ARTSAKHPRESS: “Under Israel’s semi-constitutional Basic Laws, an election winner has 28 days to form a government but the president can grant an extension of up to 14 days,” the source noted.
Rivlin signed a decree on April 17 instructing Netanyahu to form a new cabinet after the election. The law gives the prime minister only 42 days to form a government coalition and create a fifth career and fourth consecutive government since 2009.
It is expected to include the 16 members of the ultra-Orthodox parties Shas and United Torah Judaism, the far-right Union of Right-Wing Parties, Avigdor Liberman’s nationalistic, Russian-speaking Yisrael Beytenu, and the center-right Kulanu.
