Preliminary legislative elections were held in Israel on April 9, 2019 to elect the 120 members of the 21st Nasset. Elections were due in November 2019, but were pushed forward by members of the current government following a controversy over a national services bill for the Orthodox population, as well as allegations of corruption against incumbent Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
Netanyahu’s Likud signed Benny Gentz’s blue-and-white coalition, both of which won 35 seats. The balance of power was with the smaller parties, before the right-wing parties and the religious parties that are already in alliance with Likud, which could lead to Netanyahu forming the next government.
Due to a series of disagreements over the ultra-Orthodox national service, the Snap election was called and was held on September 17, 2019.
