Hundreds descended on Tel Aviv's iconic Rabin Square on Saturday to protest a ruling by the Israeli High Court of Justice which indicated Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu fit to form a coalition government despite legal charges brought against him.
The demonstrators called for «a quality government,» protesting against corruption before the formation of a new government later in the week amid... Еще negotiations between Netanyahu and his ex-rival Blue and White party leader Benny Gantz.
«We came here today to remind people that it doesn't matter whether Bibi [Netanyahu] is in the government or he isn't. The fact is that the democracy here is only for Jews, and there are many people who don't enjoy this democracy,» a protester remarked.
The prime minister has been accused of accepting gifts from businessmen in exchange for favourable press coverage. Netanyahu denies the charges and says they were part of a political 'witch-hunt' to remove him from power.
