Israel is set to hold its 5th general election in 3 years after its fractured governing coalition agreed to dissolve the Parliament before the month’s end. No, it’s not like an aspro in a glass of water, but there is a lot of fizz… That’s because it could see former PM Benjamin Netanyahu returned to the top job, but he’s still staring down corruption charges that had a role in his ousting last year. The coalition that pushed Netanyahu out brought together 8 parties from across the political spectrum, but ideological differences saw the grouping lose its parliamentary majority, and things came to a head on Monday when a key vote didn’t get enough support. Outgoing PM Naftali Bennett said “we did whatever we could to save this government, not for us, but for the benefit of the country.” A date for the election is still to be set.
