Netanyahu’s Likud Wins Come-From-Behind Election Victory in Israel

It’s the third election in Israel in less than a year.

Benjamin Netanyahu’s Likud Party has won the third of its election victories in recent memory, eeking out a come-from-behind victory over Benny Gantz’s Blue and White Party.

Israel has a parliamentary system that allows multiple successive elections at the whim of its unicameral legislature, the Knesset. The victory of Netanyahu’s Party is its third in less than a year.

In a victory speech, Netanyahu touted his nation’s strong relationship with foreign leaders, such as Donald Trump. He also discussed an improvement in relations Israel has had with surrounding Islamic countries, a development brought about by regional opposition to Shia Iran.

The succession of elections in Israel had been enabled by ongoing legal proceedings against Netanyahu on corruption allegations. The constant atmosphere of political campaigning in the Middle Eastern country has proved enough to alienate some of the nation’s citizens from its unconventional and unstable parliamentary system.

It had been thought the third election in less than a year would finally result in Netanyahu’s retirement, with the longtime Prime Minister having served in office since 2009. Polling had showed Likud trailing Blue and White- a center-left party- almost throughout the entirety of the campaign season, only overtaking Benny Gantz’s party days before the election.

It’s probable that Netanyahu’s opposition will accept the longtime Prime Minister of the country isn’t going to be retired through snap elections, but if Likud is unable to form a governing coalition, the country’s system would enact a seemingly innumerable fourth election in just over a year.

Poland’s Nationalist President Declares Election Victory Over Soros-Linked Liberal Challenger

A victory for European conservatives and nationalists.

Published

on

Polish President Andrzej Duda declared victory at a campaign rally following the initial exit polls in the nation’s presidential election on Sunday, as exit poll results showed him narrowly leading against Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski.

Initial exit polls showed Duda, of the national conservative Law and Justice Party, leading by a slim margin of 50.4% to Trzaskowski’s 49.6%. Final results are expected Monday, but Duda’s campaign is apparently confident enough in their victory to declare triumph in the election.

The Polish election had included a national debate on cultural issues, with Duda accusing Trzaskowski of supporting the introduction of western-style homosexual political movements into Poland. Duda, a continental skeptic of the European Union broadly comparable to Hungary’s Viktor Orban, had described LGBTIA+ ideology as “more destructive” than the Soviet-style Communism many Poles had experienced in the 20th century.

Trzaskowski was also scrutinized for his extensive links to western political elites, having received a scholarship from globalist oligarch George Soros and attending the California Bilderberg Conference.

If Duda’s claim of election night victory holds, his reelection as Polish president will serve as an embarrassment to the bureaucrats of the European Union, potentially forcing them to come to the table and negotiate concessions with Central European leaders such as Duda and Orban who insist upon their national sovereignty.

Duda is thought of as a European ally of President Donald Trump, having been the first global leaders to visit the White House after the coronavirus pandemic. Poland is also one of the few NATO countries to meet their treaty spending commitment, spending more than 2% of its GDP on its armed forces.

Thank you to all my fellow Poles who voted for me and cast their votes. I want to thank you with all my heart because this turnout shows how much you care about our country,” said Duda at the election rally.
