Walla Poll: Who is Most to Blame for Bringing the Nation to Another Round of Elections?


A poll released by Walla News in conjunction with Manor Geva, there is no significant change from previous recent polls regarding the size of the political parties.

Barring a dramatic event in the next day, if agreement is not reached, the Knesset will be dissolved and election for the 23rd Knesset will be announced. The current mandate expires on Wednesday night.

The parties have agreed on the date for the next election if a government is not formed; Monday, March 2, 2020.

On Monday evening, MK Yair Lapid made his dramatic announcement, that if there is another election, he is waving the rotation agreement with MK Benny Gantz. The two were supposed to rotate the premiership but now, Lapid announced he is announcing Gantz will serve as prime minister exclusively. He feels it is the best thing for Israel, and Blue & White will then form the unity government.

The poll was taken after that announcement.

  1. Worship of the army is responsible. Idol worship by the average Israeli. Charedim are not needed in the military which already has 18,000 soldiers too many. And even though Arabs are not drafted, Chilonim can’t seem to deal with the idea of leaving the Charedim out of their big, fat, stinking pile of apikorsis that is crafted in their image.
