JD: Well Winkie I guess it’s official, a third election within one year. Can you believe that?

WM: I have to Jimmy there’s some things you just cannot deny. As we we’re discussing the crisis and the negotiations and trying to figure out the balances I remind our listeners again Israel is a Parliamentary system. Just these past 2 elections as ever since 1949 no one party has ever gotten a full majority in the Knesset 61 seats out of 120. Therefore we need coalition governments where the major party has smaller parties join up to pass over that 61 seat threshold and these past two elections.
