JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s corruption trial is to resume as the country’s political parties weigh in on whether he should form the next government after a closely divided election. Netanyahu is Israel’s longest-serving prime minister and has clung to power through four hard-fought elections in less than two years, even as he has faced allegations of bribery, fraud and breach of trust. The March 23 election produced no clear verdict on Netanyahu’s leadership. Israel’s political parties will begin meeting with the president later on Monday to recommend which candidate should be tasked with forming the next government. Neither Netanyahu’s allies nor his foes secured a governing majority.
