It looks as though Bibi Netanyahu is set to take a 5th term as Israel’s PM. Despite a gallant charge from the centre left’s Blue & White Party leader Benny Gantz, Netanyahu managed to put all of the scandals behind him to win.
Perhaps more telling in his victory is that despite the relentless negative media coverage (where have we seen this before) pointing to corruption he has still managed to retain power.
Whatever one might think of Netanyahu’s character or ethics, voters have made their decision with all of that knowledge in mind. Clearly many think his policy platform is better for the country even with the (alleged) scandals than the opposition without.
