Ilatov to Elkin: Delay Vote on Dispersing the Knesset

Chairman Robert Ilatov of the Yisrael Beiteinu faction called on Coalition Chairman Ze'ev Elkin, Sunday, to delay, by a week, a vote on disbanding the Knesset, so as to advance his "Service for All" bill, which is scheduled to pass by a large margin at Monday's meeting of the Ministerial Committee on Legislation.

Ilatov said that since most factions have expressed support for the measure, there's no need to hurry to disperse the Knesset when there is a real opportunity to pass the law before the elections.
