Israel is a parliamentary democracy that differs from a presidential system common in America. The executive power is not elected directly, but citizens vote for the main political power, the Knesset (the parliament), and from within this body comes the executive power. There are four powers in Israel: President, Parliament (legislative), Executive (government) and Judicial In an election, Israeli voters elect one of the political parties (in 2019 there were 47 options) and the votes are distributed proportionally among all the political parties that have received at least 3.25% of the votes. The Parliament has 120 seats. After the results are known, the President of the State, a protocolar figure that represents the virtues of the people, convenes all the elected forces and consults about who they recommend to compose the government of Israel. The President then turns the power over to the candidate with better possibilities to present a government after 28 days (with the possibility of 14 additional days). The candidates must negotiate with close and allied political parties (never has a political party obtained the absolute majority, 61 representatives). If the candidate is able to achieve a majority, he or she addresses the Knesset requesting a “vote of confidence” to form the government. The government must be formed by at least half of the ministers that must also be elected parliamentarians. The Prime Minister must be a parliamentarian. The Israeli government has a four-year period, unless the representatives approve a “vote of no-confidence” (61 representatives) to end the government, but this also leads to their own self-dissolution. The Judicial Power of Israel, separate from the others, is elected by a special commission of parliamentarians, judges, the Minister of Justice and the Lawyers’ Guild of Israel.
