French political scientist Maurice Duverger proposes a law about how electoral systems may affect the number of parties. The simplest version of this law tells us that a "simple majority in a single constituency" tends to lead to a two-party system because voters don't want to Precious votes are wasted on small parties that have no chance of winning; in contrast, under the "proportional representation" system, smaller parties only need to get a certain percentage of the votes to be allocated seats in Congress, so the ratio The representation system is relatively favorable for the survival of small parties. Therefore, in a country like Israel that adopts proportional representation in parliamentary elections, the "multi-party system" in the parliament company banner design is naturally not surprising. The multi-party system is generally considered to be more representative of the interests of various ethnic groups in society, because compared with the two-party system, the multi-party system allows more ethnic groups to feel that they have a chance to have a voice in the halls of Congress. But the fact that there are many small parties in Congress without a slightly stronger coalition of parties can also lead to a political deadlock, which can prevent the parties within the government from reaching a consensus, and even give small parties a better chance to "intimidate" the prime minister. There are many instances of this in Israel's history. Some small parties have also taken advantage of the situation, and although they only hold a relatively small number of seats, they have also achieved some of the party's desired policy goals.
