Yechimovich to Netanyahu: Declare Elections in 2013


Labor party leader Shelly Yechimovich called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, Tuesday, to declare elections at the start of 2013.

Yechimovich said, in a statement, "Setting an earlier date will dispel the uncertainty and lack of governance regarding the budget. Netanyahu must stop the headline dance and uncertainty." She stressed that her party is ready for elections "with a cohesive national, economic and social agenda."
