In The Recent Past, Many Countries Voted For Elections In Which Many Are Coalition Governments From Gabriel Boric’s In Chile To Mark Rutte’s Dutch Government In the Netherlands


In simple words, a coalition government is one in which more than one party comes together to form the majority number to establish the government. Sometimes parties with the same ideologies come together whereas at times party with the same agenda forms the government. There are pros and cons of a coalition government in any country but the biggest advantage of having a coalition government is that there are fewer chances of authoritarianism.

While many countries in the world have authoritarian governments like Brazil, Ethiopia, Hungary, Belarus, the UK, etc. Earlier even Israel and the US were on the list but the US voted for leftist Joe Biden and Israel got a new government with Naftali Bennett as the Prime Minister bringing not just the change in government but also the ideological change.

Recently, the Netherlands voted for Mark Rutte to form a government for the fourth consecutive term. Rutte will lead the four-party coalition government. The presidential election also took place in Chile where people elected leftist young candidate Gabriel Boric will also have to form a coalition government as he is supported by the coalition of leftist parties.

Thus we a take a look at five countries that are administered by a coalition government.

Israel- Naftali Bennett

Benjamin Netanyahu’s 12 years regime as the PM of Israel ended in 2021 when Naftali Bennett became the new Prime Minister of Israel. He is leading the massive eight-party coalition government.
