Getting there requires a genuine give and take among Egypt’s political leaders and civil society groups just as we are continuing the struggle in our own country.”

The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been granted more time to try to form a coalition government, five weeks after a general election failed to produce a decisive result. President Shimon Peres gave Mr. Netanyahu another two weeks saying democracy takes effort. Mr. Netanyahu complained that some potential partners were boycotting others. From Jerusalem, Yolande Knell
五周前以色列大选未产生决定性结果,目前总理本雅明·内塔尼亚胡得到更多时间来组建联盟政府。总统希蒙·佩雷斯给内塔尼亚胡另外两周时间来实施民主。内塔尼亚胡抱怨说一些潜在对手在抵制其他人。Yolande Knell在耶路撒冷报道。

In a televised address, Mr. Netanyahu indirectly referred to how the second and third biggest parties were driving a hard bargain. Centrist Yesh Atid and the far-right Jewish Home are refusing to enter a coalition with ultra-Orthodox parties who would oppose their efforts to end military draft exemptions for students at religious seminaries. If the prime minister can’t muster a parliamentary majority by the 16th of March, President Peres could ask another politician to try. However, most analysts still expect Mr. Netanyahu to meet his deadline.
内塔尼亚胡在电视讲话中间接提到第二大和第三大党是如何拼命砍价的,中间派“拥有未来”党和极右派“犹太家园党”拒绝与极端正统派政党组建联盟,前两者希望结束对神学院学生的兵役免除,此举遭到后者的反对。如果总理无法在3月16号之前集结议会中的多数派,总统佩雷斯将请求其他政客来尝试。然而,多数分析家仍希望内塔尼亚胡在最后期限前做到这件事。
