Israel Facing Historic Election

Israel is holding a national election for the second time in less than six months today. Prime Minister Benajmin Netanyahu's right-wing party didn't win enough seats to govern.

He then formed a coalition, but he didn't win enough votes for that, either.

The Israeli parliament voted to dissolve itself and restart the election process.

Netanyahu is Israel's longest-serving prime minister, but he may not be for much longer. Polls are showing that the race will likely be very close, especially considering the corruption allegations against him.

Netanyahu has been involved in media-related allegations, and he's hoping a win could grant him immunity.

Netanyahu's biggest competition is Benny Gantz, the former military chief leading the Blue and White alliance. If Netanyahu wins, he will begin his historic 5th term, but if he loses, we could see the biggest political shift in Israel.
