Contendientes que buscan deponer a Netanyahu

By Duncan Mil

March 23, 2021 - Los israelíes votan en su cuarta elección en dos años. En las tres eleccionespasadas, los rivales del primer ministro Benjamín Netanyahu proveníande la izquierda – ahora él enfrenta un desafío de contendientes de derecha.

Over the weekend, the final opinion polls predict Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud party finishing with 29-30 seats in the 120-seat Knesset (parliament). But also show potential key allies without the necessary public support to make forming a new government straightforward.

Like the previous three ballots, this one is seen primarily as a nationwide referendum on the country’s longest-serving Prime Minister. Netanyahu, 71, currently faces charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust -- allegations which he denies -- and his trial will resume in April.

On top of that, Israel’s economy has been hit hard by the pandemic, and public anger mounted over Netanyahu’s handling of the crisis.

Israel’s three main TV stations will broadcast exit polls at 20:00GMT on Tuesday (March 23). Actual results will begin trickling in overnight and throughout Wednesday, with final results expected on Friday.
