Amidst the ongoing political turmoil in Israel, an 8-party opposition coalition has announced the formation of a government. This coalition claims that they have the support of 61 MPs needed to form the government. Despite this announcement of the opposition, the current Prime Minister has failed to form the government so far. Benjamin Netanyahu has refused to give up. He has appealed to save the country from parties with leftist slant by playing his favorite fanatical nationalism against the opposition.
Was this the beginning
According to political pundits, this is the beginning of the political downfall of Netanyahu, who has been in Israel’s power for the last 12 years. However, there are others who believe that there may be a conflict of ideologies in the coalition of Israeli opposition parties. In such a situation, questions are also being raised about the future of this alliance. Netanyahu tweeted, targeting the opposition, calling them a dangerous leftist government. Not only this, Netanyahu also appealed to all right-wing leaders of the country to protest.
Netanyahu accuses the opposition of being leftist
Benjamin Netanyahu sworn in as next prime minister Naftali Bennett And the leader of this coalition, Yeir Lepid, has been accused of selling his party to the United Arab List party, which has leftist and Islamic stances. 71-year-old Benjamin Netanyahu still has 11 days left to keep his government afloat. For this Netanyahu will have to persuade some opposition lawmakers to defect. If they succeed, there will be no threat to their government.
So elections will be held in Israel for the fifth time in 2 years?
However, even after Netanyahu’s government is formed, the danger of him falling into a minority will remain. In Israel’s electoral history, from independence to the present day, no single party has got a majority. Not only this, in the last two years there have been four general elections in Israel. If this time also the party or the opposition is not successful in forming the government, then elections can be held in this country for the fifth time in two years.
There is little hope of the opposition government also surviving.
Eight opposition parties in Israel have formed a coalition against Netanyahu. The survival of his government is also considered doubtful. In fact, the ideology of all these parties is completely opposite. Some party is staunch nationalist and some is Islamic. Some parties are centrists taking both of them together. It will not be easy to reach a consensus on a single issue in such a conflicting alliance. Opposition alliances include the right-wing Yamina Party, the centrist Yes Atid Party and the Ram Party representing Muslims.
