Capitol Hill Webinar – The Israeli Elections: A Follow Up Analysis

March 30, 2020 @ 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM


Alex Traiman Managing Director and Jerusalem Bureau Chief of Jewish News Syndicate

About this webinar: It has taken three elections, and a national health emergency, but the elongated Israeli electoral season has finally come to an end. In a surprise move, late last week, a national unity or emergency government has been formed in Israel, with a rotating premiership between Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and General Benny Gantz.

Late breaking developments over the weekend have brought into the government the Labor Party Chairman Amir Peretz. What has happened behind the scenes to bring the Israeli Knesset to this point? Is this finally the end of what seemed to some as the eternal Israeli electoral system?
