Fresh Elections To Hold Sept. 17 After PM Netanyahu Fails To Form Coalition

Unic Press UK: Fresh national elections would hold in Israel on September 17, 2019 after the incumbent Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, failed to meet the midnight deadline Wednesday to form a coalition government.

 

In its report, the Times of Israel said that after a 12-hour debate, Israeli lawmakers voted 74:45 in favor of a bill drafted by Likud, thereby dissolving the 21st Knesset and inking that fresh national elections hold on September 17, 2019 because a second election had been triggered by Netanyahu failing to form a government.

During the 1st national election held this year in April, the Likud Party, of which Netanyahu is the flag-bearer, won 35 of the Knesset’s 120 seats, so, the party was, by a wide margin, short of a commanding majority, and needed partners to form a coalition government.

Discussions were held, but in the end, Prime Minister Netanyahu was not able to reach a mutual agreement with Israel’s ex-Defense Minister and nationalist Yisrael Beytenu party chief Avigdor Liberman, whose support the Prime Minister very much needed to make a coalition government.
