Early Israel Election Increasingly Likely As Netanyahu’s Troubles Deepen


As ongoing and newly opened investigations involving Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continue to develop, it is increasingly likely that he may call an early election, and that his government will not complete a four-year term in office, according to Israeli political circles.

Many Israeli lawmakers think that Netanyahu will seek to move up the next general election—currently set for Nov. 5, 2019—allowing voters to decide the fate of his government rather than resign from office. The fact that his Likud Party is seeing an upswing in political polls may contribute to the prime minister’s decision to hold an election.
