STATEMENT FROM DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY FOR ISRAEL ON ELECTION DAY IN ISRAEL
WASHINGTON, DC (September 17, 2019) – Democratic Majority for Israel President and CEO Mark Mellman, issued the following statement today:
“While votes are still being counted, we congratulate the people of Israel on conducting another free and fair election. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East, the only country in the region where people are free to choose their leaders.
We will likely not know the political complexion of the new Israeli government until a coalition is formed in the coming weeks, but we hope the new government will protect Israel’s security, uphold its democratic traditions, maintain a commitment to a two-state solution, and bring Israelis and Palestinians closer to peace.”
Democratic Majority for Israel fights for Democratic victories and progressive values, including a strong U.S.-Israel relationship.
