Benjamin Netanyahu said government ‘unanimously’ agreed to election amid divisions over military draft law
Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government agreed on Wednesday to hold early elections in April after the ruling coalition appeared to come up short on votes needed to pass a contentious piece of legislation.
Netanyahu said his coalition “unanimously” agreed to disband the government and hold a new election. At a meeting of his Likud party, he listed his accomplishments in office and said he hoped his current religious, nationalistic coalition would be the “core” of the next one as well.
