Tel Aviv: A hardcore Arab Islamic party named ‘Ram’ (Raam) has emerged as a kingmaker after a thorn in the elections held in Israel on Tuesday. Netanyahu’s party Likud and its allies are seen getting 59 seats even after counting 90 percent of the votes till Thursday morning. The Israeli parliament has a total of 120 seats in the Nesat. In such a situation, for the majority, Benjamin Netanyahu will have to arrange at least 61 seats.
Only 3 seats difference between Netanyahu’s alliance and opposition
The difference between the coalition of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the coalition of his opposing parties is very small. Netanyahu’s coalition of opposing parties is estimated to get 56 seats. In such a situation, a big role is being seen in forming the government of Ram Party. The Ram Party is projected to get at least 5 seats in this election. If she supports the Likud Party alliance, Netanyahu’s dream of becoming prime minister again will be fulfilled.
Netanyahu’s staunch nationalism can become a snag
Benjamin Netanyahu is known for his staunch nationalist ideology. They have been against giving more leeway to Palestinians or preventing the expansion of Israeli colonies in the Gaza Strip. While the ideology of the Ram Party is exactly the opposite. In such a situation, it will be necessary to see if Ram supports his radical nationalist Likud Party, which is called its unnatural ally.
Not yet announced support
The party has not announced support for anyone at the moment, but given the circumstances, it cannot be ruled out that the United Arab List, called Rama in Hebrew, can decide on Israel’s longest time Whether or not Netanyahu will remain in power till Prime Minister. Leader of the opposition party Yair Lapid contested the election last year in collaboration with Defense Minister Benny Gantz, but backed out after an agreement between Netanyahu and Gantz on a power partnership. This time he has campaigned claiming to defeat Netanyahu.
Know ram party
The Ram Party claims to lead Arab-origin residents in Israel. There is not much number of Arab Muslims in this Jewish-majority country. Among them, many Muslim voters are supporters of different parties. It is seen for the first time that in the election of Israel, the Ram Party, which has a good relationship with Palestine and Arab countries, has got the votes equal to five seats.
Voters vote for the party in Israel
The election of the Neset, the parliament of Israel, is based on a proportional voting system. In which the voter has to vote for the party instead of the candidates on the ballot paper. The parties are allotted seats of parliament in proportion to the votes polled. This process is completed within 28 days. If a party gets 10 percent of the vote, then it is given 10 percent i.e. 12 percent of the total 120 seats of parliament.
It is necessary to get minimum of 3.5 percent votes
For any party to reach the Neset (Parliament), it is necessary to get a minimum of 3.25 percent of the total vote. If the vote percentage of a party is less than 3.25, then it is not given a seat in Parliament. Before the election, every Israeli party issues a list based on the preferences of its candidates. Based on this, the MP is elected after winning the election. If an MP dies during his tenure, then later leaders included in this list are given a chance
