Fall Series: Israeli Elections, Again

Thursday, September 12, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Part 1: Understanding the September Ballot
9/12 | 6:30-8 PM | Boalt 115
Join us in anticipation of the 9/17 elections to learn more about the candidates, the issues, and the current climate Israelis are facing as they go to the polls.

Part 2: Election Day
9/17 | 12-2 PM | Goldberg (Boalt Hall)
As votes roll in, join us for live updates and analysis of the results. Who is winning? What does that mean? What is still left up to chance?

Part 3: Forming a Government
11/7 | 5-7 PM | TBA
At this stage, we might already have a new prime minister and cabinet. Or the coalitions could still be forming. Or have failed. Join us to discuss the aftermath of the 2019 elections!
