As the Israeli elections are fast approaching, The Jerusalem Post's chief political correspondent Gil Hoffman and Knesset reporter Lahav Harkov join this week's podcast, to provide a clearer picture of the possibilities for Israel's future coalition.

While Hoffman says the most stable coalition would be one made up of right and far-right parties, he thinks President Reuvlin Rivlin will try to force a national unity government with both Likud and the Zionist Union.

Harkov says the union of the Arab parties onto one joint list has turned them into a "force to be reckoned with", and says Joint List head Ayman Odeh could even end up being leader of the opposition.
