The United Center Bloc is a political alliance of the leading Yisraeli centrist parties - the center-to-center-left Alternative for Yisrael and the center-right Action Yisrael. The list was created on November 17, 2019, about two months before the 2020 general elections. At the time of its founding, the Center Bloc had 22 incumbent Members of Knesset, and pre-election polling suggests the bloc is set to gain 6-12 additional seats. The Center Bloc is the first time a third political bloc outside of the Right and Left blocs have contested the de facto two-party presidential system.
