The political deadlock continues in Israel today after the country’s second election this year. Official results are still unavailable, but it looks like neither Benjamin Netanyahu’s conservative Likud party nor the centrist Blue and White party, led by former military chief of staff Benny Ganz, have won enough seats in parliament for a majority. As lawmakers begin negotiations to form a governing coalition, we'll talk about the results and the likelihood of a third election. We’ll also discuss a potential new coalition’s implications for Middle East peace and security.
