Coalition Chairman MK Yariv Levin (Likud) estimated Monday that the government will face a stormy Knesset term, as the Knesset began its summer session.

"After a long period in which the Knesset was paralyzed, we are beginning the summer term today, and there is no doubt that it will be a stormy one, with deliberations that last into the night," he told Arutz Sheva.

"Unlike the previous Knesset, there is no doubt that there will be a meaningful Opposition, and I see this in a positive way."

"There are new MKs and new factions," he added, "and I have no doubt that, at least in the beginning, we will experience many difficulties. However, we are tested in our responsibility toward the public and the electorate, and in the end, I am sure we will be able to pass the meaningful moves."
