Israel to Hold March 2 Election, Its Third in Less Than a Year
Israel will hold an election on March 2, its third in less than a year, parliament decided on Thursday after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his main rival failed to parlay the previous two ballots into a new coalition government, Reuters reports.
By a vote of 94 in favor to none opposed, lawmakers approved a motion dissolving parliament and setting the new election date. It came hours after a final deadline passed to form a government following the last election in September.
In that ballot, and in the one prior in April, Netanyahu’s conservative Likud party deadlocked with ex-general Benny Gantz’s centrist Blue and White. Neither managed to muster enough support in the 120-seat Knesset for a stable coalition.
- Israel: Gantz and Netanyahu Fail to form Government before Deadline If the parliament fails to select such a candidate, or if the chosen person could not form a government within 14 days, Israelis will be asked to hit the polls yet again.
- Israel Election: Netanyahu Claims 'Biggest Win' Amid Vote Count Monday's election was Israel's third in less than a year, after neither leader was able to form a government.
- Benjamin Netanyahu Chosen to Form New Israel Government If he fails, centrist Gantz of the Blue and White party will likely be given a chance.
- Israel Election Results: Netanyahu’s Bloc Slightly Ahead but Fails to Secure Majority Avigdor Lieberman, whose Yisrael Beiteinu party is projected nine seats, is expected to be the election's kingmaker.
- Netanyahu Charged of Bribery Worth $300,000 Netanyahu, in his turn, addressing the nation live on television shortly before the police released their findings around 9 p.m., made clear that he would not step down.
