The Knesset is set to vote on Wednesday on the final readings of a bill that would limit prime ministers to eight years in office. The vote will be preceded by a 16-hour filibuster by the opposition that started at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday. Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar’s decided to bring the bill to a vote now, as there are currently no coalition MKs who are ill with corona. Because it would change a Basic Law, it would need the support of an absolute majority of all 120. Knesset members, 61 MKs, and not just those who vote. Joint List faction head Ahmad Tibi said his faction also supports the bill, however, Sa’ar does not want to rely on the Joint List.

Hmm that's interesting be similar to America.

It is possible to serve more than 8 in the US.

If a VP gets installed as Pres due to the Pres dying or being impeached after the Pres has already served 2+ years, the VP, now Pres, can run and serve for their own two administrations.
