"This evening, there were tens of thousands of people at the demonstration; at the elections two and a half months ago, there were millions," stated MK Miki Zohar in response to Saturday evening's anti-government protests in Tel Aviv.

"We promised the public change, we promised governance, we promised reforms, and we will follow through," he clarified.

Religious Zionism chairman Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich stated: "In the year of the previous leftist government, we protested again and again, but the media hardly mentioned the demonstrations after the fact or by accident," he claimed. "Despite this, we toppled the government, and we won the elections. The nation is with us, and through its strength, we will reform the justice system."

Thousands of left-wing activists gathered at Habima Square in Tel Aviv on Saturday evening to protest Benjamin Netanyahu's new government.

At 8:00 PM, police estimated that approximately 15,000 protesters had gathered at the square.

At the same time, approximately 2,000 protesters demonstrated in Haifa, and in Jerusalem, approximately 1,500 protesters gathered outside the president's residence. In Modiin, protesters stood outside the home of Justice Minister Yariv Levin.

MK Elazar Stern from the Yesh Atid movement expressed regret that there was no religious and haredi representation at the demonstration in Tel Aviv, telling Israel National News: "It pains me that they did not come. After Rabin's murder, they said 'they don't want us in the demonstrations', but the time for this excuse is over. We want religious Zionism in these demonstrations."
