Naftali Bennett, Israel’s Prime Minister, appears to be facing a difficult period. Bennett’s Israeli government must “resolve its own difficulties” or risk collapsing owing to a shaky coalition. Bennett’s coalition, which has just been in power for about a year, is battling to stay afloat. This makes it simple for ex-Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to re-enter the Israeli political landscape.
Nonetheless, with criminal charges pending against him, there appeared to be no possibility for him to return to politics a year ago. Netanyahu, on the other hand, stayed for the arduous court battle, and his lawyers lately had a string of victories. And now, based on our following presumptions, we believe Netanyahu will be re-elected as Israel’s Prime Minister.
- Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu managed the cordial relationship with both US and Russia at the same time- The relationship between the United States and Russia is among the most critical bilateral relationships in the world, with implications well beyond the two states themselves. And it is anyway difficult to maintain a cordial relationship with both the countries any country. But Netanyahu did it successfully. Israel enjoyed unquestionably good relations with the United States under Netanyahu’s leadership. At the same time, it was able to establish confidence with Russia. For example, Putin defined Israel and Russia as “unconditional friends” in “efforts to battle international terrorism” during a meeting with Netanyahu in June 2016.
- Netanyahu’s economic policies as a finance minister- Netanyahu made key economic reforms as Finance Minister, which critics also give credit for greatly improving Israel’s subsequent economic performance. Under Netanyahu’s leadership, Israel’s severe foreign exchange controls were considerably loosened, allowing Israelis to take an unlimited amount of money out of the country, create international bank accounts, keep foreign currency, and freely invest in other nations.
- The weak coalition of Bennett- Bennett’s alliance includes hard-right, liberal, and Arab parties. In response to Israeli attacks on the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, the UAL( Arab party) has threatened to leave the coalition on several occasions. Also, Bennett’s own right-wing Yamina party member Nir Orbach recently said that he would no longer vote with the government coalition.
Furthermore, Israel continues to lose both the United States and Russia under Bennett’s leadership. Israel has been at odds with the US on a variety of topics, and it recently ran into a significant problem with Russia when it bombarded Russian airspace in Israel.
- Growing favoritism for Netanyahu- Netanyahu is gaining ground in the polls with each passing day. He is close to his goal of 61 seats for his rightwing-ultra-Orthodox alliance. According to the most current survey, he is expected to win 59-60 seats, with 35 of those coming from his own party. Yair Lapid, the Alternate Prime Minister, comes in second with only 20 seats for his Yesh Atid party. In the poll, incumbent Prime Minister Naftali Bennett receives only 5 votes.
Furthermore, Netanyahu has recently gotten a lot of support on his video podcast channel. Netanyahu spends an hour on his video podcast discussing one of Israel’s main concerns. From the economy to politics, he covers everything that is important to Israel’s national interests. With the help of these video podcasts, he has gained a lot of support. As a result of Bennett’s weaker coalition and increased support for Netanyahu, we surely believe that Netanyahu’s return is inevitable.
