Israel’s post-election talks are likely to be messy

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

Significance

Israel will hold its second legislative vote of the year on September 17 after coalition talks collapsed following April’s previous election.

Impacts

  • Netanyahu will try to shift the focus of the election towards security, and away from religion and society issues.
  • The prime minister will vaunt his personal ties with Trump, Putin and Modi to enhance his image.
  • The re-emergence of the Joint List may improve voter turnout among the Arab population.
  • With the country still in holiday mode, the campaign will only start in earnest in September.
