Once More, With Feeling? Israeli Government Collapses


The Israeli government officially fell apart on Tuesday at midnight local time. The collapse came after Israel's parliament failed to meet a deadline for passage of the 2020 and 2021 budgets. CNN reports Israel will now head to its fourth elections in two years, probably on March 23 next year. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Blue and White leader Benny Gantz blamed one another for the collapse of their tenuous coalition government. Opinion polls suggest Netanyahu's Likud party is again on track to win the most Knesset seats in the next election. With Blue and White hemorrhaging support, Netanyahu's biggest rivals seem to be coming from other right-wing parties, which have been gaining ground.
