For the fifth time in 3 years … New elections in Israel

For the fifth time in three and a half years, today, Tuesday, Israel will witness the new legislative elections for the 25th Knesset, where over six million and seven hundred Israelis will vote for forty parties.

Voter turnout this time plays a decisive role: if it were high among Jews and low among Arabs, former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could manage to win 61 seats for the right-wing bloc, while it would fail if the vote among the Arabs was tall, according to the Al-Arabiya / Al-Hadath correspondent.

Meanwhile, provisional Prime Minister Yair Lapid tries to keep power, despite opinion polls showing his centrist party Yesh Atid (there is a future) will lag behind Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud party in the vote, which it will be followed by complex paths to reach a governing coalition.

Unconfirmed result

Those elections came after the collapse of the so-called “change” coalition, which brought together eight disparate parties that managed to oust Netanyahu from the presidency but ultimately failed to achieve political stability.

But in a political system in that the transfer of one of the 120 Knesset seats from one party to another could strengthen a governing coalition or a further deadlock until new elections are possible, the outcome once again remains uncertain.

frantic races

Anyone chosen to form a government would need the support of many smaller parties to have a chance to win a majority of 61 seats.

And far-right “religious Zionist” leader Itamar Ben Gvir could be the key to helping Netanyahu return to the premiership, where his bloc has gained momentum in recent weeks and could be third in the election.

Interestingly, these legislative elections coincide with the escalation of violence in East Jerusalem and in West Bank, occupied by Israel in 1967.
