After the latest Knesset (Israeli parliament) elections, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was given the first chance to try to form a coalition government. However, he failed to do so by the deadline: he only managed to get 60 seats' worth of parties (so, one seat short of a majority), due to a dispute between would-be coalition partners.
As I understand it, the default result of this failure would be that a different party leader (presumably Benny Gantz of Blue and White) would next be given a chance to form a coalition; but instead, the just-elected Knesset voted 74–45 to dissolve itself and schedule do-over elections. [link]
Why did Knesset vote to do this? What were the different parties hoping to avoid, or what are they hoping will happen the second time around, or . . . ?
