Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu Blames Looming Ouster on “Biggest Election Fraud in History”

HeadlineJun 07, 2021

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has claimed, without evidence, that an inconclusive March 23 election was rigged. Speaking to members of his right-wing Likud party Sunday, Netanyahu said the election was marred by the “biggest election fraud … in the history of any democracy.” Netanyahu’s remarks drew comparisons to former President Donald Trump’s false claims about the 2020 election. They came as Netanyahu faces a corruption trial and as a coalition of opposition parties led by far-right nationalist politician Naftali Bennett is poised to end Netanyahu’s 12-year term as prime minister.
