The elections for the twenty-fifth Knesset were held on (Tuesday) 1/11/2022, and these elections are the fifth in almost four years, as no government coalition could continue until the end of its supposed four-year term according to the Basic Laws in “Israel”, and the Knesset elections were scheduled to be held in 2025, but the inability of the government coalition to continue as a result of ideological and political differences between the parties Synergists made it very difficult to continue joint political action.
