OCCUPIED-AL-QUDS: Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, on Sunday elected a new speaker prior to a slated vote on a coalition government poised to end Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s record tenure. Mickey Levy of the centrist Yesh Atid ("There is a Future"), the party led by coalition architect Yair Lapid, will replace Yariv Levin of Likud, Netanyahu’s right-wing group, as the speaker of the 120-seat legislative body. He received 67 votes.
