At this point all the big parties know they are going to elections.
Why don't the big parties come together today, and dissolve the Knesset today, so that the election campaign can get underway earlier?
Is it because Bibi has no incentive to get the clock moving?

Why do it actively when that will make you the villain who wanted third elections, when it can happen passively and not be your fault?

Next round scheduled for Mar 2. Unless there's some kind of exogenous shock, there's no reason to believe that we will see anything but déjà vu all over again.

The knesset offically disbanded so I don't think they really have that option.

You really expected a transitional government with a hung parliament to pass such a law.  ::)

Doesn't need to be a law. Make it a one-off.

In a place of law and order, a one-off requires legislation.  ::)

As an aside, I just saw a comment on one of the Israeli websites saying: "what difference will another round make, nothing will change until they reintroduce good old election fraud. "

It's a lot easier to pass one-off legislation than permanent change. Blame would go on those that refuse to find a way out of this insanity.

How would direct PM election be a way out? What can he do without the parliament?

Did Boris Johnson have an easy job once he was appointed PM without full backing in parliament?

And why would any of the players vote for it? What's in it for them?

This isn't rocket science. With a directly elected PM there wouldn't be drama about who will be PM first. Alliances will be much easier to make with that off the table.

If you don't go for it you'll be seen as causing an endless elections cycle, which will cost you votes.

Meanwhile King Bibi will stay PM through all these rounds of elections. He doesnt care :).....Benenet is Defense Minister Smotrich is Transportation Minister Deri is well Deri and the right wing stays in power.

If March brings no change (which seems to be the case according to every poll) then Bibi will be PM through September....

And the country will go bankrupt. This is ridiculous already. And there is no way out. We should just schedule the September elections already

Sure there is. I've been saying it since day 1.
