Rivlin stated that “after you presented the need for additional time to complete forming a government, and according to clause 8 of Basic Law: The Government, I hereby extend the time allocated to form a government by fourteen days.”

According to the law, Netanyahu was allocated 28 days to form the government. Rivlin granted an extension to this period of 14 additional days.
