The Executive Council of Australian Jewry have congratulated incoming Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on his election win but have also voiced concern about homophobic elements within the coalition he may lead. Netanyahu returned to leading Israel following elections last week. He was previously the Prime Minister for 12 years but was ousted in 2021. The country has had five elections in the last four years, with no party being able to maintain a majority coalition.  Netanyahu’s bloc won 64 seats, while the coalition led by the incumbent Prime Minister Yair Lapid won 51 seats. The new government has been described as the most right-wing in the country’s history, as well as being the most religiously focused.
