The above picture shows the results of Israel's last three parliamentary elections, roughly divided by party position: the innermost circle is April 2019, the middle circle is September 2019, and the outer circle is the just "concluded" March 2020 election result. The Blue and White coalition led by Benny Gantz, who attempted to challenge the current Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and the so-called "leftist" parties won these three elections in order: 45 and 44 seats. 40 seats; Netanyahu's coalition party (Likud), Haredi's party and right-wing parties combined won: 60 seats, 55 seats, 58 seats; expressed hope that Netanyahu company banner design will step down, and his position is right-wing, but Avigdor Lieberman, who joined forces with Gantz to push back Netanyahu, and the "Israel Beiteinu" (Israel Beiteinu) led by him won: 5 seats, 8 seats, 7 seats; less The "Arab political parties" that may join the government have grown from 10 seats in April 2019 to 13 seats in September 2019, and finally 15 seats in this election. It can be said that Lieberman, who had joined the Netanyahu government several times in the past, continued to boycott, resulting in the right wing led by Netanyahu being unable to win more than half of the 120 seats (61 seats); Gantz of the Blue and White Alliance and his "left wing" "Allies, even with Lieberman's Israel as our home party, are far away; Gantz's other problem stems from the relatively small chance of having an Arab party in the government, and the two religious parties (Haredi) And Lieberman, there are conflicts about religion and secularism; in the end, Lieberman and Gantz's determination to let Netanyahu "walk" is obvious, which makes the United Party and the Blue and White Alliance Congress form a "United Congress". The government's chances are slim.
