Prime Minister-designate Benjamin Netanyahu is expected tomorrow (Wednesday) to bring for the Likud faction's approval his appointment of Amir Ohana as Speaker of the Knesset.

Earlier today, Interim Speaker of the Knesset MK Yariv Levin, resigned after serving in the position for only two weeks and ahead of the expected swearing in of the government on Thursday in which he will be appointed Justice Minister.

Levin's resignation will take effect within 48 hours and his replacement, as mentioned, will be Amir Ohana.

This appointment will allow Netanyahu to appoint Israel Katz to the position of Foreign Minister, apparently as part of a rotation, allowing him to deal with some of the criticism he has faced within the Likud party for giving too many ministerial positions to other parties rather than members of his own party.

Tomorrow Netanyahu will invite most of the Likud MKs to personal meetings where he will inform them what position they will received in the government or in the Knesset.
