    early legislative elections were held in israel on 9 april 2019 to elect the 120 members of the 21st knesset. elections had been due in november 2019, but were brought forward following a dispute between members of the current government over a bill on national service for the ultra-orthodox population, as well as impending corruption charges against incumbent prime minister benjamin netanyahu.

    netanyahu's likud tied with blue and white alliance of benny gantz, both winning 35 seats. the balance of power was held by smaller parties, with right-wing and religious parties that have previously sat in coalition with likud, which would have allowed netanyahu to form the next government.

    due to continuation of the disagreements over the national service of the ultra-orthodox, a snap election was called, and was held on 17 september 2019.
