Israel realiza as quartas eleições em dois anos face a crise orçamental
December 23, 2020 - A coligação governante em Israel colapsou ao fim de sete meses, levando o país fatigado de eleições para a quarta votação em dois anosA eleição terá lugar a 23 de março e terá um novo protagonista.
Netanyahu, who is used to labelling his opponents as weak leftists, finds himself confronted by a trio of disgruntled former aides who share his hard-line ideology, led by a popular lawmaker who recently broke away from the prime minister’s Likud party.
Whether Netanyahu can fend off these challengers or not, the country is almost certain to be led by a right-wing politician opposed to concessions to the Palestinians, complicating hopes of the incoming Biden administration to restart peace talks.
The prospects of Israel’s centre-left bloc appear worse than in previous contests because its leader, Defence Minister Benny Gantz, entered into the ill-fated alliance with Netanyahu. Gantz has lost the support of much of his disappointed base, and the bloc has been left leaderless.
