Israeli elections: Netanyahu IV

May 15, 2015, Natan Sachs

On May 14 Israel's 34th government, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's fourth, was sworn in, following a flurry of last minute negotiations. In lieu of the more stable, governable coalition the prime minister had hoped for when he called for elections last December, Netanyahu now heads a majority comprised of only 61 members. Given the make up of this government and the difficult negotiations that led to its formation, Natan Sachs writes that Netanyahu is now challenged and constrained on multiple fronts, including from within his own Likud party.
