Israel Sets Date For Elections

Post by Pete » Mon Dec 24, 2018 6:10 pm

Israel sets date for elections

Israel is to hold a general election in April, the ruling coalition has said.

The political partners decided to call the poll after failing to resolve a dispute over a draft conscription bill for ultra-Orthodox Jews.

If PM Benjamin Netanyahu is returned to office he would be on course to become Israel's longest serving leader.

However a question mark hangs over his political future, with the attorney general due to decide whether the PM should be charged with corruption.

Mr Netanyahu is being investigated on suspicion of committing fraud and bribery in three cases.

He has denied the accusations, accusing political opponents of carrying out a witch-hunt against him.

Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Early elections called for April 9 as coalition agrees to dissolve Knesset

Government says all parties have agreed on national polls after ‘full four-year term,’ amid disagreements over ultra-Orthodox draft law and as AG weighs corruption cases against PM

Amid a series of coalition crises and deliberations over a possible indictment against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, coalition leaders announced Monday that Israel will head to the polls within four months, with a general election set for April.

“Out of national and budgetary responsibility, the leaders of the coalition parties decided, by unanimous agreement, to dissolve the Knesset and go to new elections at the beginning of April after a four-year term,” the heads of the five coalition parties said in a joint statement.

Elections were previously slated for November 2019, and the announcement means that Knesset members will vote to dissolve parliament early. Hebrew media reports said the elections would likely be held on April 9.

Early elections in Israel as Benjamin Netanyahu disbands government

The decision to call the election follows months of turmoil in Israel, including corruption allegations involving Mr Netanyahu.

By Alan McGuinness, news reporter

Israel's coalition government has agreed to hold early elections, amid a crisis over a military conscription bill and corruption investigations into Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Mr Netanyahu, who has been in office since 2009, said the decision was a "unanimous" one and the poll will be held in April.

Under law, a fresh election has to be held by November 2019.

At a meeting of his Likud party, Mr Netanyahu listed his achievements in office and said he hoped the current religious, nationalistic coalition would form the "core" of the next government.
