Israel’s Prime Minister – level 1

19-04-2019 07:00

People in Israel vote. The Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, is probably going to be leader again.

In Israel, people vote for political parties. They do not vote for specific people. There are two big political parties. There are some smaller parties, too. Some people vote for the small parties. They get into the parliament. Some of these parties like Netanyahu. This helps him. Some people say that he does bad things as a leader. The new party can help him.

President Trump talks about Netanyahu. He says there can be peace between Israel and Palestine if Netanyahu is the leader.

Difficult words: vote (choose a party or a leader/boss of a country), going to be (in the future), political party (a group of people that work together to be the leaders of a country), peace (not war).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
