Israeli protesters call for Netanyahu to step down
Netanyahu accused of corruption one month before elections

This comes a month before April's general election, while Netanyahu declared his intention to run the elections again for the fifth-term, claiming that the left has pressured the general prosecutor to issue an indictment.
“The left understands that they will not beat me at the ballot box,” Netanyahu said. “They exerted extraordinary pressure on the general prosecutor to issue an indictment even though there is nothing, in order to influence the elections and to crown a left-wing government," he added.

Under Israeli law, Natenyahu has the right to run for another elections even though he is indicted, moreover, he is not required to step down unless he is convicted, which could take years due to the appeal process and procedures.
Netanyahu accused two prosecutors for charging him based on political motivations, and he claimed that the investigations were not conducted in a professional way,
