Abstract. The general elections of 2014 did not bring significant changes to the Israeli political scene. The Likud party repeated its performance of the previous elections and came out first, although with a slightly reduced number of vote. Accordingly, Benjamin Netanyahu stays on as a prime minister. His chief partner and rival, foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman, leader of the party “Our Home Israel”, also retained his positions. Quite surprising was a high percentage of vote, obtained by Yair Lapid’s party “We Have the Future”, as well as “The Jewish Home“, led by a fast ascending politician Naftali Bennet.
Keywords: Israeli parliamentary elections, alliance and rivalry between Likud and "Our Home Israel", prime minister Netanyahu, Lieberman, Lapid, Bennet
