The budget passed today (Monday) in the first reading with a majority of 63 supporters against 55 opponents.

Yoav Galant, who was removed from his position as Defense Minister by Netanyahu, was absent from the vote.

The budget will be NIS 484 billion in 2023, and NIS 514 billion in 2024.

Even though the budget was approved by the government, the law that was placed on the Knesset table does not include the billions of coalition funds that have to go through a government approval procedure.

However, a discussion on the issue did not take place.

Minister of National Security Itamar Ben Gvir stated that he would not vote in favor of the budget, because the additional budget promised to his office in the amount of NIS 9 billion was not included in the proposal that was placed on the Knesset table - but in the end, he voted in favor.

Yoav Galant was absent from the vote on the budget - the continuation of the Knesset depends on his approval.

This, after he was dismissed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from his position as Minister of Defense, following his call to stop the legal revolution legislation.

Netanyahu claimed that he fired Gallant for a "lax response to refusals".

If the budget is not approved, the Knesset will be dissolved by the end of May.
