A vote in Israeli Knesset toward its dissolution, possibility to hold new elections

The Israeli website i24news pointed out that the Israeli Knesset ratified late in the evening of Monday the preliminary reading to dissolve itself with a large majority.

The site pointed out that the members of the Special Committee then agreed on a date for the next parliamentarian elections on the seventeenth of next September, after about four months.

It should be noted that the bill project should be voted once in the second and the third reading to become valid, which observers expect to be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, so that the decision to hold new elections will be irreversible.

The Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Yisrael Beiteinu Party, the leader Avigdor Lieberman on Monday evening in a final attempt to find a solution to the crisis, but the two left the bilateral meeting after 22 minutes, and announced that no understanding had been reached.

Benny Gantz, the head of the Blue White Coalition, announced that his party would not support a bill to dissolve the Knesset, saying that the task of forming the government should have been assigned to him after Netanyahu's failure.

During a meeting held by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in his office in Jerusalem yesterday with the heads of the parties participating in the coalition negotiations, it was decided to continue efforts to exhaust all opportunities to avoid new elections and reach a solution to the Conscription Act, including the possibility of canceling this issue from coalition agreements and resorting to the High Court of Justice to request the procedure for determining the decision; however, it was decided that this should be done in parallel with the preparations for the elections.

Lieberman announced that his party would support a bill to dissolve the Knesset, charging the Likud of the government formation crisis, describing it as a resounding failure.

Lieberman said during his speech to the mass of Yisrael Beiteinu on Tuesday afternoon that his attachment to the issue of the Recruitment Act was a principled position, not retaliation against a personal background. He stressed that he would not be a partner in a government based on Jewish law.
