Unveiled at industry conference, plan takes top treasury official by surprise.00:02 27.11.15 | 0 comments
Jeff, few people believe this government, and Kenesset, will last for the rest of the term (2010). The problem is that the two larget parties (Kadimah and Labor) are in a weak position as a result of the war, and are expected to lose many seats if elections are held soon. Therefore, their Knesset members will try to avoid new elections. There are also some sectorial parties (such as ultra religious and Arabs), whose voters remain pretty much constant. For them, elections are just a headache, spending money on advertisements but ending up with about the same results. They never want new elections. The coming few months will tell us much. In about 2 months, the commission investigating the war will come up with a preliminary report. Perhaps some heads of top leaders will roll. A political earthquake tends to lead to elections. In late May, the Labor party will have elections for leader. Depending on who gets elected, there might be a push for new elections. I hope it happens.
