Benjamin Netanyahu was sworn in as Israel’s prime minister following a vote in parliament Thursday that brought in the most right-wing government in the country’s history.

Netanyahu was sworn in a few minutes after his new government was approved, with 63 deputies out of 120 voting in favor of the administration.

Netanyahu formed his government after signing agreements with ultra-Orthodox parties and parties from the far right.
