On June 30, Israel’s 24th government coalition voted to dissolve, plunging the country into its fifth elections in 3.5 years, scheduled for November 1, 2022. The coalition included an Arab party, Ra’am, for the first time in Israel’s history, along with parties spanning left, center-left, and right-wing political platforms.
Ra’am’s inclusion in a governing coalition is widely viewed as an “experiment” in Jewish-Arab political cooperation. With the coalition’s demise, emerging analyses and speculations differ regarding the degree to which this partnership succeeded, and what it means for the future of Arab participation in Israel’s national political stage.
