ISRAEL—The Jerusalem Post reported today that with the high number of failed coalition governments, experts predict that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will form a new coalition government by the year 2089. Experts also predict that in the same year a new government is formed, Netanyahu will be in his 98th term as prime minister.
“This is a fight we can’t afford to lose,” Netanyahu said. “I don’t care if it takes 237 elections for me to become prime minister – it doesn’t matter. I’ll keep on fighting to defend the only Jewish state on the planet.”
In an effort to bring back some semblance of electoral stability, the Knesset passed a new law earlier this year, according to which all voters will be required to post selfies after casting their votes. Failure to post selfies carries a 1-year prison sentence and $5,000 penalty.
Election experts say that although the new law won’t solve all of Israel’s electoral troubles, it’s a good step in the right direction.
