Through elections the people have the ultimate say on the next president. The elections are the most reliable means of identifying the next Israel president from the two major candidates. If any candidate other than the Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wins the election, the election body will crown such as the president.
On the contrary, if Benjamin Netanyahu is the winner, the current president Reuven Rivlin’s may delay the accession of Netanyahu to power due to the abuse of office and corruption allegations against him. Here, Netanyahu may be forced to form a coalition government in order to stay in power, or unit the divided Knesset to gain more than 61 member support for presidency.
