There’s growing talk of early elections in Israel (not that that’s anything new), but yet another poll shows that all that’d be accomplished would be to further solidify Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s mandate to govern.
According to the monthly Peace Index conducted by the Israel Democracy Institute, an overwhelming 70 percent majority of Israelis want a right-wing, conservative government.
A mere 24 percent want a left-wing government.
And while Netanyahu’s Likud wouldn’t necessarily emerge with a clear majority of its own, there is little, if any, doubt that it would remain the strongest of the right-wing parties.
And that means Netanyahu would would almost certainly remain prime minister.
