Shas Stance may mean Early Elections


Sources in Shas said Wednesday that their party will not support a string of budget cuts aimed at balancing the economy. The movement believes the cuts will cause undue harm to those who are already struggling with poverty, they said.

If the cuts do not pass, they added, the elections are almost certain to be held early.
