A government that last 3 years would be amazing in Israel, average amount of time a government survives us 2-2.5 years sometimes even shorter than that then the bickering begins, coalition partners pull out so a 1 billion shekel election is held and most the parties will be back in the government just in new roles. Whilst other countries have cabinet reshuffles Israel has expensive elections. Israeli's biggest problem is the electoral threshold is so low that the Knesset is flooded by little parties and they hold the balance of power because without them in a coalition there is no government. The system will never change because the losers would be the little parties not the mainstream and there are more MKS in little parties than there are in the mainstream ones so they will block it because a high electoral threshold would destroy them. We need a system where we have 3-4 mainstream parties only and the party that wins most seats runs the country alone for a fixed term.
