Knesset Speaker to Deliberate Election Delays

Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein will hold an emergency meeting Sunday morning in order to deliberate the possibility of delaying the upcoming presidential elections in light of candidate Binyamin Ben Eliezer’s dropping out of the race.

A number of senior ministers already announced their opposition to any initiative to push off the elections, including MKs Yair Lapid, Uri Ariel and Gideon Sa’ar.
