After losing a key Knesset Arrangement Committee vote on Monday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is looking for a way to salvage his premiership and put together a coalition. This time, he is advocating for yet another election, but in a different format: a direct vote for prime minister.

All this while his on-again-off-again partner, Naftali Bennett of Yamina, has opened the door to the possibility of forming a “unity government” with the Israeli center-left. Evan Gottesman and Eli Kowaz break down these issues and more in the latest episode of Israeli Policy Pod.
