Opposition fails to pass likely last no-confidence votes before Knesset dissolves

The opposition fails to pass its potentially last two standalone no-confidence motions of the 24th Knesset, depending on the pace of the ongoing dispersal process.

The motions, which have become a weekly standard feature during the tenure of Israel’s 36th government, were again put forward by the Likud, Shas and United Torah Judaism parties.

While the motions served a largely declarative and symbolic purpose, had the opposition succeeded in marshaling the 61 MKs to vote in favor, the government would have immediately transitioned from the current to an alternate slate proposed as part of the motion process.
