It’s 43 days until Israel will be going to new elections! They will be held on Tuesday, April 9th. How exactly does the Knesset (Israel’s Parliament) work? How is it that smaller parties can MERGE with larger ones to make a union, and then dissolve themselves from this union they made, after they are elected into the Knesset?
Also, do you know how many political parties there are in the running for this 21st Kensset? 47 parties! Are you confused? Well, Tamar Yonah and her guest, Michael Cohen, a veteran military, political and security strategist, from MCohen.US explain Israeli politics to you so you can understand just how things work!
