Benjamín Netanyahu, al frente del actual Gobierno dominado por derechistas y religiosos, triunfó de nuevo en las elecciones de ayer, pero perdió buena parte de los apoyos con los que contaba. Venció, pero no convenció. Los electores castigaron su gestión y auparon a Yesh Atid (Hay Futuro), un partido de centro liderado por un experiodista sin pedigrí político y que ha hecho del laicismo su bandera. La extrema derecha logró consolidar su meteórico ascenso al lograr un cuarto puesto.
