Israel is heading to the polls for a third time in less than a year, and according to recent polls, none of the blocs will have 61 mandates, the minimum number necessary to form a coalition.
Will Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s approaching court proceedings have an effect on Likud voters? Could it be positive? Would Blue and White agree to form a national unity government with Likud, notwithstanding Netanyahu’s circumstances? How could it all pan out?
Dr. Assaf Shapira will discuss the unprecedented elections, their possible outcomes and other related issues.
Dr. Assaf Shapira is directing the Political Reform Program at The Israel Democracy Institute (IDI). He was a post-doctoral fellow at the Leonard Davis Institute for International Relations at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and at the Centre d’études européennes (Center for European Studies) at the Sciences po (Paris). His research largely focuses on political representation, political parties, the role of money in politics, and reforms in Israel’s public service.
