10:06 am
axing prime minister for severe charges of corruption is it difficult and sad to say to the israeli public and for me personally. the cases against prime minister benjamin netanyahu are known as case 1010 yeah when his family are suspected of receiving gifts from business colleagues and close friends case 2000 covers allegations that newton yahoo attempted to influence the publisher of a daily newspaper to gain more positive coverage the recommended charges in both cases fraud and breach of trust and case $4000.00 allegations of regulatory favors for israel's largest telecommunications company in exchange for positive media coverage the charges here fraud breach of trust and bribery netanyahu has rejected all the accusations and says he will continue to lead the country he's in unity as prime

minister means he won't be legally forced to resign but his political future hangs by a thread he has failed to form a government after 2 consecutive elections and he now faces a legal process that could drag on for years. joining us now here in the studio is the mideast analyst shelley result if you show us you know having been even that he's the longest serving prime minister in israel can he manage to survive this politically well i know better than to say these are the last days all meant too many commentators have fallen into that trap in the last years when things seem to be getting dire and dire it is however this time serious more than ever and we have seen even before the the indictment charges were brought we saw yesterday morning already people from his own party challenging him calling for primaries calling for elections for the leadership of the likud because he was not contested since 2014 so if we see his own base. against them and we will see we've seen also in the 2nd
10:08 am
elections as a roshan mostly of the right not of the left so going for a 3rd round of elections we might see the right bloc be the ones suffering the most ok no we're not reported that he could survive this politically for a number of years it's really possible what he's trying to do it was clear yesterday in the speech he's starting his campaign and his his line is 5 clear this is an eagle illegitimate an attempt of the lefty elite to bring down the right and me as a sitting prime minister it can't work it can resonate with his audience especially and we need to remember his coalition he has a mini coalition with some other parties in the parliament who are supporting the block the 55 bloc 2 of the leaders of the parties connected to that bloc there's them self's are facing charges so they don't have a particular interest in being kind to the police this kind of line of campaign serves them very well so so many men and you know could remain potentially in office is really just a for at least 3 weeks well at least 3 weeks unless we i mean if if we see
10:09 am
a major political earth shake that should probably ensue in the next week otherwise we will probably see him for the next couple of months until the 3rd term of election is coming probably early march 3rd of march and he can definitely stay in office until then if happens next and into the spring right now opposition leader bennett dances saying there's no way he can stay in office by pointing out that any decisions of state he makes could be for personal reasons it's not going to play out in the new election campaign you mention of course i mean of course everybody is you know getting geared for their new campaign but this is the question exactly the question is supreme court will have to will have to determine because there's no doubt whatever comes now whatever political scenario comes whatever happens in the knesset in the parliament that has it's going to end up being decided by the supreme court someone will appeal from either side and the supreme court will have to decide this is a president that all the have to set can a sitting prime minister also be one fighting. actively you know charges against
10:10 am
him where does turmoil leave the country you have to ask who's running the country well officially that to now his government is still in office it's clear the great stagnation we talk about budget when you talk about the need for social services everybody is realizing this is not an ideal situation the last round in gaza last week of shown us that things are very shaky this is partially why the hope and the expectation of netanyahu to step down is you know is something that is unrealistic he is not he feels he uses this instability as a as a as a proof of why he needs to stay and keep you know his hold tied over the government even though it's not as tight as he wishes it could expand even his base is rich and shiny was honest thanks so much for coming into. let's a preview of the other stories making the news this hour u.s. lawmakers have wrapped up public impeachment hearings against president david holmes describing the overheard telephone calls about
