Fall of Blue and White party leaves opening on Israeli political map

With Blue and White splitting and the Labor party declining, there is an opening for a new political alignment on the social-liberal side of the Israeli political map.

The dissolution of the Blue and White Party in Israel was expected because of its very fragile common denominator, but even those who were skeptical about its political life expectancy were astonished that it happened so quickly.

Collecting and associating some people from the right and other people from the left doesn't mold a centrist party together, especially if its only aim is to replace the prime minister and does not have a clue about handling the many other issues on the public agenda.
