Ruling coalition in Israel collapses: Election set for March after country’s MPs vote to dissolve parliament

Daily Mail

Israel’s ruling coalition has finally fallen apart, paving the way for an election in March – two years ahead of schedule.

The country’s MPs yesterday overwhelmingly approved a motion to dissolve the parliament, or Knesset, after prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu failed to iron out differences with coalition partners and called for a poll.

Further votes are due next week that will officially disband the parliament. The government, which took office in early 2013, will be one of the shortest in the country’s history.

On Tuesday, Mr Netanyahu fired two rebellious ministers. His fractious centre-right cabinet has been bickering for weeks over the budget and a bill that would enshrine into law Israel’s status as a Jewish state.

Rising violence between Palestinians and Israelis has also been an issue, as have the Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

After years of research and a series of unpleasant experiences concerning the current child protection services system, Alec Cope decided to combat the cancerous corruption through information. Freelance writing articles as a form of protest and distributing them throughout his former high-school and local area, Alec struck special chords with whomever he was in contact with.

Alec has been involved in activism such as sit down protests as well as Idle No More gatherings. Being independent for the majority of his time, Alec became a member of the WeAreChange family to assist one of the organizations that inspired him to become active in the first place. With a larger platform and positive support Alec has committed the majority of his time to research, writing, and maintaining social media with the goal to continue expanding the awakening sweeping throughout all levels of society.

Growing up within a rural area in Northern Michigan as well as being a native American descendant, Alec is seeking to expose environmental abuse in his state as well as globally. A high-school dropout, Alec chases his passion for writing and empowering individuals while showing any isolated person that they too can overcome the odds with a community that will support them. Alec lives in the lower peninsula of Michigan near Kalamazoo.
