Gila Gamliel: Early Elections Unnecessary


Deputy Minister Gila Gamliel told the Likud Central Committee, Sunday evening, "There is no doubt that as far as the political challenges and the Iranian issue are concerned, it is preferable that the present stable, responsible and experienced government be the one that will continue to lead the state of Israel."

She continued, "Early elections will also be unnecessary from the standpoint of costs associated with moving them up. However, the prime minister will not hesitate to call elections if the coalition partners exert political pressure that have consequences on implementation of the policy and negatively affect the public and society.
