Israel Government - TravelPuppy.com
Israel has a parliamentary system of government, with a single chamber, the 120 seat Knesset, elected every 4 years by universal adult suffrage.

The Knesset passes legislation and assigns a President as head of state. Executive power rests with the cabinet, led by the Prime Minister, usually the leader of the largest party, which takes office after a vote of confidence from the Knesset.
