The President with vice president has a 4 year term. 3. Of the 40 Knesset seats, 30 Knesset seats will be regional with a 2 term limit. 10 Knesset seats would be national with a 4 term limit for 24 years to prevent professional politicians. 4.

Each person will vote for one Knesset member. the top candidates with the most votes will win the seat. The 10 national seats would be voted upon in a similar manner. Change will not happen if we allow the Cats to guard the milk. however, To get our corrupt MK's to support change we may need to allow a 6 year change over period. Continued........
