Netanyahu’s Likud party is expected to win the most parliamentary seats in the March 23 elections, although it is unclear whether it will be able to win a majority alone or form one with another party.
The demonstrations also come at a time when Netanyahu is still implicated in an alleged corruption scandal on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust. The prime minister stands by his innocence.
Israel’s fourth snap elections two years ago erupted in December, when Israel’s parliament missed a deadline to pass the budget. The collapse occurred due to a disagreement between Netanyahu and Defense Minister Benny Gantz over the national budget, which is crucial to the power-sharing deal that was formed between them after the third election. The election would have entered Gantz as prime minister in November 2021.
