Your submission is now in Draft mode. Once it's ready, please submit your draft for review by our team of Community Moderators. Thank you!


Israel holds national elections every four years, however elections can be held early if no party is able to form a governing coalition or the government is dissolved midway through a term. Israel has held four elections in the past three years. The most recent election has just concluded and coalition negotiations are still ongoing. Will this election result in a stable government, or will there be more political gridlock?

Will Israel hold a second national election for Knesset in 2021?

This question will resolve positively if another national election for Knesset occurs in Israel by December 31st 2021.

Local elections, additional coalition negotiations, or an election that is announced in 2021 but scheduled for 2022 are not sufficient to cause this question to resolve positively. This question is only asking about a national election to select members of Knesset that occurs in 2021.

This question closes retroactively on the day that a qualifying election is announced.

Resolution dates will be according to Israeli Standard Time.
