The Yisrael Beiteinu faction welcomed, Tuesday, the cancellation of early elections caused by the addition of the Kadima party to the ruling coalition. In a statement the facton said the stability in government created by the move will allow it "to deal with the national challenges before us, including passage of induction-for-all legislation, changing the system of government, and additional security and economic matters...."

The statement continued, "Israel Beitenu made ​​it clear from the start that it is ready for elections at any time but the national interest requires elections as scheduled. Israel Beiteinu sees the real test of the extended coalition as applying the compulsory service law to everyone and we hope that the coalition will formulate, as soon as possible, a law heralding real change on the subject and not another version of the Tal law."
