‘Israeli” Elections Take Place for Third Time in Attempt to Break 12 Month Stalemate
By Staff, Agencies
‘Israelis’ started voting for a third time in the span of a year on Monday, with embattled Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu seeking to end the occupation entity’s overwhelming political crisis.
The election with 6.4 million voters was expected to be another tight race between Netanyahu's right-wing Likud party and the centrist alliance Blue and White, but both sides are expected to fall well short of a majority, if latest polls are to be relied on.
In the last few days, the bitter rhetoric of the electoral campaigns had reached its climax. Netanyahu and his main rival, the former army chief Benny Gantz, ripped into each other.
Netanyahu told Channel 12 that Gantz was “not fit” to be prime minister. “He is weak; he’s not a leader,” he said. Gantz, for his part, said in another interview that his opponent was acting as if he was part of a mafia.
