Israel dissolves parliament, will have 5th elections in 4 years
The decision formally ends a year-long experiment in which eight formations from across the Israeli political spectrum tried to find common ground after a long period of political stalemate with four elections in two years.
Israel’s parliament voted Thursday to dissolve it and send the country to the polls in November for the fifth general election in less than four years.
Foreign Minister Yair Lapid, who was the architect of the outgoing coalition government, will become the interim prime minister at midnight on Friday.
He will be the 14th person to hold the post after Naftali Bennett, the longest-serving prime minister.
The new elections will be held on November 1.
