Israel: Preliminary vote to disperse Knesset paves way for new election
Legislature was dissolved after the deadline for passing the budget expired
Israel’s parliament was dissolved on Wednesday after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s fragmented ruling coalition failed to pass the budget.
The decision kicks off the procedure for the fourth parliamentary elections in two years and renews an unprecedented political crisis.
The coalition, led by Netanyahu and his former electoral rival, Defense Minister Benny Gantz, has been approaching collapse for weeks, undermined by mutual animosity and mistrust..
Dissolution of the Knesset means new elections could take place as early as March 23rd.
Coalition led by Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud party and Gantz’s centrist Kahol-Lavan party should have passed the budget before midnight.
The absence of a decision by this date means the end of the unstable political alliance of Netanyahu and Gantz, who opposed each other in the elections in April and September 2019 and in March this year.. None of these choices led to a clear result.
