One month ago, the Netanyahu-Gantz unity government was sworn in. Since then, the political waters have become increasingly choppy: plans of annexation/sovereignty, wrangling between government ministers, seismic shifts in Likud’s and Blue & White’s respective popularity, and a possible high court intervention. As a result of these dramatic developments, are a fourth round of elections likely?
It’s only been a month, but there’s so much to discuss. Dr. Osnat Akirav will deep dive into the current state of Israel’s ruling coalition, and analyze the possible scenarios.
