Netanyahu to Call Early Election
With many predicting Benjamin Netanyahu would call an early general election one year before he is obliged to do so by law, he has made his strongest suggestion yet that this will indeed be the case. The actual date is still uncertain, but may well be 4 September.
In a keynote speech to the Likud Conference on Sunday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said:
"I will not lend a hand to an election campaign of a year and a half that would destabilize the government. I prefer short elections of four months that could quickly bring back the stability to the political system."
