Is time up for Israel’s prime minister?

Benjamin Netanyahu’s opponents have a chance to end the run of Israel’s longest-serving leader.

Two years and four elections later, Israel is still no closer to having a government.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu missed a Tuesday midnight deadline to form a coalition.

His opponents now have a chance to end the run of Israel’s longest-serving leader.

Much of the impasse is due to Netanyahu’s legal troubles, as allies say they will not work with a prime minister who is on trial for corruption.

So, what happens if the deadlock drags on?
