Favourite to win, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has pledged to continue controversial settlement building on the West Bank.

Home to ex-Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman, the Nokdim settlement is widely expected to vote for the right-wing alliance with between Lieberman’s Yisrael Beitenu and Netanyahu’s Likud party.

In Ma’ale-Adumim, the third largest Israeli settlement on the West Bank, Netayahu’s promise of settlement building is not the most pressing issue for all, as one resident explains.

“Most of the people are now dealing with the economic problems. All of them know that there will be cuts after the election, that’s why they don’t care anymore.”

The international community has voiced concerns that any further settlement building would put an end to Israel-Palestine peace talks indefinitely.
