Israel went to the polls twice in 2019, again in 2020, and there is a likelihood that it will do so again in early 2021. This session will discuss the Israeli political system and how it differs from the UK. It will explain why no government could be formed after the two elections in 2019, why one was formed in 2020, and why it is so precarious.
