Podcast: Daily Briefing Mar. 24 – What we know the day after the big election

Tune in Sunday through Thursday to hear ToI editors and reporters quickly catch you up on what’s important today

Welcome to The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing: Your 15-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East, and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday.

Today’s panel comprises founding editor David Horovitz and senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur, along with host Amanda Borschel-Dan.

A day after the big election day, votes are still being counted. Our panel sorts out what we know and what we think will happen as the Islamic party Ra’am crosses the electoral threshold and changes the coalition map-making.

We discuss the chances of the strange casserole of a Likud-led coalition that includes Ra’am; the anti-Arab, Kahanist party Otzma Yehudit; and the religious, anti-gay Noam party.

In other news, despite some polling to the opposite, Benny Gantz’s Blue and White party has more than crossed the threshold, apparently along with the once-dying Labor party and Meretz.

Discussed articles include:

Netanyahu urges rivals to join him in coalition, warning 5th elections otherwise

Updated exit polls show no clear election winner, but Otzma Yehudit can rejoice

Exit polls show far-right, anti-LGBT candidate slated to enter Knesset

What electoral threshold? Blue and White, Labor, Meretz beat gloomy forecasts

In referendum election on Netanyahu’s achievements, victory again eludes him

Cyprus to allow Israelis in starting April 1; Greece lifts cap on visitors
