Election Countdown- Why does Tali Woolf have no idea who to vote for?
On January 22nd, Israel will vote for its new Knesset, and choose the Prime Minister to lead it. Much unlike the American system, here, we have countless parties with countless ideologies to choose from. Behind the curtain, we will cast our ballot, and choose one party only. The person leading the party which will get the most votes, will become Israel's next Prime Minister. I asked some of my friends to tell me, and you, whom they are planning to vote for, and why. Some knew the answer right away, some are still struggling. Each day, I will post a different column with a different opinion. Take in count that this is merely a taste of all the parties competing for our votes. Today, Tali Woolf will explain why she as no idea who to vote for.
I don't know where my vote will go/Tali Woolf
Not this year.
Now she's back. Why should I waste my vote on her again?
Since I am a left-winger, I naturally should vote for Ha'Avoda or Meretz. I did it many times before, but this time, it's not that simple for me to do so…Itzhak Rabin was my ideal leader. Where can we find someone like him today?
Does Shelly Yachimovich, who is now leading the party he used to lead, walk in his path? No, not really.
I'm not sure.
Sadly enough, I know Netanyahu will win this election, so realistically I'll probably vote Ha'Avoda to strengthen the opposition.It's not easy for me to admit, but unfortunately, I have become indifferent. I will vote, I'll never pass this right I have, but in the day after the election, there will be nothing for me to do but sigh...
