Israel: Out of Eurovision 2023?

Even though Middle Eastern country has already chosen a representative since August 10, Noa Kirel, it seems that this year the country is also flirting with the possibility of withdrawing from the Eurovision Song Contest 2023, in Liverpool of the United Kingdom.

Specifically, according to a report by the Kanal 12 station, the Likud party that won the recent elections in Israel led by Benjamin Netanyahu is considering closing the KAN station, specifically its news department.

From its side, the Likud party commented:

“The issue did not come up in the discussions.”

However, this is not the first time that something like this is discussed, with Benjamin Netanyahu himself already expressing his desire to close the KAN station in 2017.

Should the closing procedures of the state-owned station proceed, Israel will not be able to participate in the upcoming Eurovision 2023 contest.

Just like last year, the possibility of the country withdrawing from the music competition is floating. What do you think will happen? Let us know what you think in the comments.

Stay tuned on Eurovision Fun for all the developments around the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest!
