JERUSALEM, Nov 5 (Reuters) – Israel’s parliament approved a 2022 national budget on Friday by a vote of 59 to 56, giving a greater measure of fiscal stability to Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s cross-partisan coalition government.

The $146 billion spending package was ratified after the Knesset passed on Thursday a 2021 budget ahead of a deadline which, if unmet, could have triggered a snap election.
