Has Israel's Political Stalemate Come to an End?

Thursday, May 07, 2020, 1:30pm – 2:30pm EDT

The coronavirus has hit Israel in the midst of a major political and constitutional crisis. What does the Israeli public think about these latest developments and will they bring Israel’s warring political parties together?

Yohanan Plesner, President of the Israel Democracy Institute, and Professor Tamar Herman, Director of IDI's Director, Guttmann Center for Public Opinion, will discuss the recently signed coalition agreement between Benjamin Netanyahu's Likud and Benny Gantz's Blue and White Party, assess the chance of a new government being formed and analyze what types of policies we could see from such a cabinet.
