Israel will continue to have regular elections every five months, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu announced Monday.
After the results of last week’s election proved inconclusive, with no candidate for prime minister gaining a Knesset majority to back him, Netanyahu said there’s no reason why elections can’t take place regularly with victor.
“I’m happy to stay interim prime minister forever, and the people will be fine with it too. Look how low unemployment is and how many African and Central American leaders love me,” Netanyahu said, in an interview from his hairdresser where he was trying out a new shade of ash gray.
“It keeps the poster design and printing industry in business, and everyone gets another day off every five months. It’s a win-win proposition.”
Asked if his impending trial on various corruption charges would hurt him in future election campaigns, Netanyahu pointed out that his legal issues haven’t gotten in the way so far.
“Who do you trust more, me or the attorney-general?” the prime minister asked, puffing on a cigar. “That reminds me, I need to call Milchin.”
