Israel’s Prime Minister – level 3
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is possibly going to be re-elected after this week’s votes.
In Israel, people vote for political parties instead of particular candidates. There are two main political parties: Netanyahu’s party and his rival’s party. There are also small third parties that won seats in Israel’s parliament, and some of these smaller parties support Netanyahu.
The new people in parliament may help Netanyahu weather the suspicions of corruption. Strong support from the parliament will lessen the consequences if people find him guilty.
In the USA, President Trump welcomed Netanyahu’s victory, and he said that peace is more likely between Israel and Palestine with Netanyahu as leader.
Difficult words: seat (a spot, a place), weather (deal with), consequences (the effects).
