Israeli elections and exchanged accusations

Israeli public opinion polls suggest that Likud leader Benjamin Netanyahu is expected to win about 30 seats in the next Knesset elections in April. Netanyahu does not feel reassured about this, and he recently allied with two far-right parties, the Jewish Home and Jewish Power (Otzma Yehudit), if they ally in the elections.

Netanyahu promised to give the Jewish Home two seats in his government if he wins the next elections. Jewish Power party consists of extremists who inherited Meir Kahane’s party after being banned from the Knesset elections.

The same polls that suggest Netanyahu would be on top in the upcoming elections also suggested that the Jewish Home and Jewish Power parties would not win any seats in the elections. However.

Netanyahu is up against a popular opponent in Israel, former chief of staff Benny Gantz of the Israel Resilience Party. He accused Netanyahu of fleeing to the United States from Israel to live in luxury and comfort.
