Netanjahu hofft auf Rückkehr
November 1, 2022 - Benjamin Netanjahu, Israel’s längst-dienender Premierminister und polarisierende politische Figur seiner Generation, möchte wieder an die Macht, wenn die Israelis zum fünften Mal in vier Jahren wählen müssen.
In the latest poll, the bloc led by Prime Minister Yair Lapid scored 56 seats, while the bloc led by opposition leader Benjamin Netanyahu won 60 seats, just one short of a majority ahead of Israel’s election on November 1.
The election comes after four years of political turmoil that started at a time when Netanyahu, after a decade as prime minister, was dogged by corruption allegations, which he denies.
The vote also comes at a time talks to resolve the Israel-Palestinian conflict have long since stalled and as violence has flared again in the occupied West Bank.
