Israelis Head to Polls to Decide Netanyahu’s Fate

HeadlineSep 17, 2019

Israelis are casting ballots today in the country’s second parliamentary elections this year. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the vote after he failed to build a coalition government following April’s election. Netanyahu has vowed to annex nearly a third of the occupied West Bank if he wins today’s election. He is currently facing possible indictments over multiple corruption cases. Netanyahu and his far-right Likud party are facing off against ex-military chief Benny Gantz and his Blue and White party. If both parties fail again to win a majority, they may end up forming a unity government.
