ISRAELI ELECTIONS: A result only in Israel

Haaretz reported Wednesday September 25, 2019 that the election result in Israel now favoured a government coalition led by Likud so the President tasked Benyamin Netanyahu with forming the government. The subheading reads as follows:“…if Netanyahu fails, (it) could set the stage for a third election cycle within a year” and so it goes. Democracy in action.

Here are excerpts from the article: “Netanyahu said a unity government was the order of the day, emphasizing the threat posed by "the gumption and chutzpah of Iran."

“He also spoke of the Trump administration's so-called ‘deal of the century,’ saying Israel will need a strong unified government to set its eastern border in the face of American demands. "In the 71 years of Israel's existence, we have not had such an opportunity and it's doubtful that we will have one in the coming years," Netanyahu said, adding that he believed details of the plan would be revealed "only if we stand as a single, broad front."

According to final election results announced overnight Tuesday by Israel's Central Election Committee, Likud has won 32 Knesset seats, still one behind Kahol Lavan (Blue and White) which maintains 33 out of 120 seats.

However, the results don't change the number of recommendations each candidate for prime minister received, with Netanyahu at 55 and Gantz at 54.
