The Debate

Has Bibi lost it? Israel vote fails to deliver majority for Netanyahu

Has time finally run out for Benjamin Netanyahu? He has been proving the polls wrong since 1996, but this time the ballots really don't add up in his favour. We ask about Bibi's fate - amid corruption cases - and what swung Tuesday's do-over of another snap election just five months ago. Would Israeli policy be much different under former army chief of staff Benny Gantz of the Blue and White Alliance? Could he even do a deal with the Likud? Or is this chapter one of a new political direction?
