The Israeli political scene is in full swing, as general elections will be held in the Jewish State once again after the failure of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to form a coalition government after the elections in April.
According to a poll conducted by Magar Mochot Institute, Benyamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party would win 31 seats if elections were held today.
Last week Netanyahu broke Israel’s record for the longest-held time serving as prime minister, a title formerly held by the country’s founding father David Ben Gurion.
The Blue and White party led by former Chief of Staff Benny Gantz would receive 30 seats, followed by the Arabic list with 12 seats.
The left opposition is seeking to unite to prevent the Likud in power since 2009, and well placed in the polls, to win again the poll in September. The leftist Meretz Party and the new party of former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, announced last Thursday their alliance for the parliamentary elections of 17 September.
According to the poll, they would reach 9 seats, followed by Avigdor Lieberman’s Israel Beiteinu’s party and United Torah Judaism who would receive 7 seats apiece.
General elections in Israel will take place on the 17th of September 2019
