ISRAEL’S ELECTION OUTCOME AND THE NEED FOR ELECTORAL REFORM

By Professor David Newman OBE

A day after Israel’s second elections in three months and the country still faced the difficult task of putting a new government together.

What did Israel gain from having two elections in such a short period and what are the realistic chances of putting a new government together in as short a time as possible?

Professor Newman will discuss the attempts which have been made over the years to reform Israel’s electoral process, why such proposals have never been implemented and the likelihood of future reforms aimed at greater government stability and more effective governance.
