Chareidim are the most predictable.
Will they sit with Lapid?

Yeah, keep it plural and just put starting in 2019, as there's no indication that another round will have any different outcome.

There's still a 21 day period in which anyone can get 61 signatures. I would not be shocked if bibi gets 61, which would then give him 14 more days to actually form a government.

Maybe they'll get rid of the Lieberman clown. I don't see what anyone would vote for someone who keeps holding the country back. Nevermind that his whole platform at this point is just hate.

Once Lieberman declared support for a direct election for PM, the end is obvious. There is a solid majority to pass that, there will be a special election for PM, bibbi and the right will win again, ובא לציון גואל

Not happening. Even Lieberman conceded that it cannot happen in this stage with a transitional government in place. Only once a permanent government is installed can the system be changed.

So change it just for this election.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I think it's pretty evident bibi would win in a head to head vs gantz.

He probably already has a majority, and I'm sure a lot of Arabs will abstain.

In a direct election, how does it work with the rest of the Knesset?

Lets say, there was a direct election now, and Bibi beats Gantz, how will Bibi be able to pass any bills for the next 4 years, if he only has 55 out of 120 supporting him for anything?

I'm no expert, but is it time to switch to directly electing a PM and a party separately?
Said this 2 months ago. I don't see another way forward.

Which is part of the reason they did away with it. Though back then the minimum threshold to enter the Knesset was much lower.

I think that having a two round election might be a better option, but there again it's all up to the details.

It can give cover to someone (Labor?) to join a government under Bibi. None of them want to be blamed for allowing Bibi to remain PM, but once that is decided they may take whatever they can get in exchange for supporting him.
