What's next for Israel? Coalition building is the name of the game now - and a game it is, with few rules or precedents.
Following the reduction in mandates received by Likud/Beitenu and the surprising entry of Yair Lapid's Yesh Atid as the 2nd largest party in the Knesset, many Israelis and commentators look to PM Netanyahu to form a 'centrist' government. But what will this mean - on policy issues from the economy to diplomatic moves, from Iran to universal service in Israel for Haredim & Arab-Israelis, and more? Moreover - with the "Left" and "Right" virtually even if Haredi parties and Yesh Atid join either side, is it possible Netanyahu will not be asked to form the next coalition?
