Israel heads to its 3rd election in 1 year after failure to form coalition

Israel’s parliament Wednesday approved a preliminary vote to dissolve itself, putting the country on the verge of a third election in a year. PM Benjamin Netanyahu and the rival Benny Gantz were unable to agree on a power-sharing agreement during a three-week window that would have avoided another vote. Netanyahu insisted on serving as PM while Gantz refused to serve under him.
