What if we didn't have elections?
Haaretz claims that Prime Minister Netanyahu is still trying to avoid elections - at least until Monday.
According to recent reports, Likud activists have been sounding out Yesh
Atid Knesset members about defecting from the party and remaining in
the coalition, while the ultra-Orthodox parties might yet join the
coalition without going to elections.
All of the politicians
involved strongly deny that they have any intention of reconstituting
the coalition, but stranger things have happened in Israeli politics.
The dissolution bill is due to have its second and third readings on Monday. Until then, anything can happen.
Where have we heard this before
