Likely Election Date: January 22
The Israeli Cabinet gave its approval on Sunday to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's proposal to hold an early general election on January 22. The Knesset will vote on the Cabinet proposal and will likely approve it.
If the government had been able to complete its term, a feat that no government has accomplished for years, the date would have been in next October.
