Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu received a letter from the Israel Democracy Institute Wednesday calling upon him to keep his campaign promise to reform the electoral system in order to promote governance and stability.

Officials at the Jerusalem-based rearch institute warned that in light of Netanyahu's difficulty in forming a stable government, Israel could continue to vacillate from one political crisis to another without meaningful electoral reform.

The reforms recommended by IDI include making the leader of the largest party automatically prime minister, not requiring a prime minister to receive a vote of confidence from the Knesset when presenting his new government, and cancelling a current law that automatically initiates elections if the state budget fails to pass.
