politics and government of
Israel

The next Israeli legislative election is scheduled for 7 November 2017 but could happen earlier if the government chooses to hold early elections. On 11 March 2014 the Knesset voted to raised the threshold needed to get a seat from 2% to 3.25%, which would exclude many of the smaller parties, and may result in party merging. The vote was boycotted by opposition.[1]

Campaign[edit]

In 2013, the Sons of the New Testament party was founded to represent the interests of Arab Christians to run in future Knesset elections. Unlike the other Arab parties, Sons of the New Testament encourages its supporters to enlist in the Israel Defense Forces.[2]

Opinion polls[edit]

Polls may not add up to 120 seats due to rounding or omitted parties that drop out or do not poll consistently.
