The announcement that Israel will vote to disperse the Knesset and head to a fifth election in four years is "unprecedented" in the landscape of established democracies, according to a professor of the Israel Democracy Institute, Ofer Kenig.

Before the most recent crisis, Israel was already ranked seventh from the bottom out of 21 countries rated from infrequent to most frequent, with elections an average of every 3.3 years.

However, with this latest election, "Israel has slipped to the last place among those countries, with elections every 2.4 years on average," Koenig explained. "The rapid decline is the result of the ongoing deep political-constitutional crisis."
