Ballots in a Jerusalem polling station, Knesset Election day,

The chances of a government being formed following Israel’s upcoming March 2 national elections are so slim, Israel’s Central Elections Committee has already set the date for a fourth consecutive election.

Assuming the March 2 election produces the very same stalemate created by the past two rounds, Israelis will be invited back to the polls to cast their ballots once more on September 8.


Hebrew-language journalist Amit Segal revealed the information Friday in a piece published by the Israeli daily Yediot Ahronot.

If by some miracle a government is produced by the election on March 2, the September 8 ballot will obviously be eliminated.
