The Israeli media reported the failure of negotiations between the Likud party and the blue-white coalition and the regime's preparation for the fourth parliamentary elections in less than two years.

Iran PressMiddle East: According to the Times of Israel, following the disagreement between Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and the head of the Likud party, with the leader of the Blue and White Party, Benny Gantz, the Knesset (Israeli parliament) did not pass a bill Tuesday night calling for a postponement of the budget deadline, so, the fourth general election in the occupied territories is likely to take place on March 23 next year.

On Monday night, Israeli lawmakers were due to decide to give the Likud and Blue-White parties a chance to discuss approving the 2020 budget plan, which ultimately failed in parliament.

After lengthy talks, Benjamin Netanyahu rejects the previous agreement on rotating prime minister and approval of a two-year budget plan, and with his party insisted on approving a one-year budget to somehow prevent Gantz from becoming prime minister in November 2021. 

According to Israeli media, the main root of the regime's political crisis stems from Netanyahu's efforts to retain power despite his corruption cases, his refusal to approve Israel's budget, and his inability to form a cabinet after three elections.
