The Israeli parliament (Knesset) on Thursday, June 30, voted for self-dissolution. The next parliamentary elections will be held on 1 November. This is reported by The Jerusalem Post.

It is noted that the vote was supposed to take place yesterday, June 29, but the coalition and the opposition could not agree on the date of the elections.

The opposition parliamentarians demanded to hold elections on October 25, but the final date was November 1. Party lists must be submitted by September 15.

It is worth noting that this will be the fifth parliamentary election in Israel in less than four years. The reason for this is the collapse of the coalition between Prime Minister Naftali Bennet and alternative Prime Minister Yair Lapid.

BAGNET recalls that yesterday, June 29, Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennet announced that he was leaving politics and will not run in the new parliamentary elections.
