Israeli voters returned to the ballot box on November first for the fifth time in four years. The current government of the 24th Knesset marked an end to the 15-year reign of Benjamin Netanyahu, but the seven-party coalition, headed by Prime Minister Neftali Bennet never managed to consolidate power and was dissolved earlier this year. After that, Benjamin Netanyahu could return to power by winning the elections on 1 November! But what will a ‘new’ Netanyahu-era look like? What policies will the previous coalition government pursue after it leaves power? Can weary Israeli voters hope for a more stable government?
