"Benjamin Netanyahu lashed out at the newly agreed coalition set to remove him from power"
Right-wing members of parliament have been urged by Mr Netanyahu to prevent the coalition from taking office. Late Wednesday, eight parties reached an agreement to work together to form a new government.
However, the coalition, which includes members from across Israel's political spectrum, also requires parliamentary approval to take office. A date for such a vote in the Knesset has yet to be set (parliament). However, it is likely to happen no later than next week, and there is still a possibility that the newly formed alliance will be thrown off by defections.
Mr Netanyahu, in his first remarks after the coalition was revealed, urged members of the Knesset "elected by votes from the right" to vote against it.
Observers also predicted that Mr Netanyahu, who struggled to form his own coalition despite his Likud party winning the most seats in the March election, would try to prevent the group from gaining the necessary support.
