Despite the huge deficit in the state budget, parties that are now in the Knesset are due to receive of tens of millions of shekels in loans from the state in the next few days to finance their election campaigns.   Parties currently have huge debts that come to almost NIS 200 million.

  Topping the list for the most money owed is the Likud, with a debt of more than NIS 64 million. In second place is the Israel Resilience Party—the faction of Blue and White that is led by Benny Gantz—with a debt of almost NIS 25 million. In third place is Yesh Atid, with a debt of more than NIS 15 million.

KAN's Mark Weiss asked attorney Michael Partem from the Movement for Quality Government in Israel  how is it that parties are getting more money when they still haven't paid off their debts from previous elections.
