The elections are two weeks away. This must be the most dormant election campaign I’ve seen in my life, probably a combination of the general “there-is-nobody-worth-voting-for” feeling and the fact that the political parties suspended their campaigns during the fighting in Gaza.
I am still undecided about who to vote for. The natural choice is the Labour Party, but I have an ongoing issue with their economic agenda (and with their “disappearing act”). The logical choice would be Kadima, as I agree with most of their agenda. The problem I have with Kadima is that most of the people there, including the leader of the pack, are not exactly my cup of tea. My heart goes for Meimad-Green Movement, but I have thrown my vote away in the past for Meimad when it did not make it in, and I don’t feel like repeating that mistake.
Interestingly, the Israeli blogoshpere seems to favour Meimad-Green Movement, so perhaps they will surprise everyone after all and make it through on a “trend vote”, just like the Pensioner Party did in the last elections.
Oh well. Two more weeks and then I’ll need to make a decision.
