The Israeli Knesset elections held on March 17, 2015, were a subject of significant interest for the United States. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's Likud party finished with a six-seat advantage over the center-left Zionist Union (a joint list of the Labor and Ha'tnua parties), which was particularly striking because Likud had trailed by four seats in final pre-election polls. Under the laws governing Israel's multi-party parliamentary system, Israeli President Reuven Rivlin assigned Netanyahu on March 25 to form a majority coalition within 28 days. On April 20, Rivlin provided a one-time extension under law to give Netanyahu until May 6.
