Avoid loss of voice

The Israeli political scene is in full swing a few weeks from the third legislative elections organized in one year in the country, after the failure of Mr. Netanyahu and his centrist rival, Benny Gantz (Blue White party) to form a government coalition to the outcome of the September election.

The left opposition seeks to unite to prevent the Prime Minister’s Likud, in power since 2009 and accused of corruption in three cases of winning the March election.
