PM Netanyahu’s political future in doubt as president asks leader of centrist Yesh Atid party to try to form coalition.
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.

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?
