Amid coalition turmoil, Kahlon calls for early elections

Finance Minister Moshe Kahlon urges Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to call early elections.

“As things stand, the best thing for the citizens of Israel and the Israeli economy is to hold elections as soon as possible,” Kahlon tells Netanyahu today, according to sources close to the finance minister.

The call comes amid growing speculation that Netanyahu may be forced to call early elections following the resignation, announced yesterday, of Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman.

According to Hadashot television news, Kahlon said that new elections that would result in a new and stable government is now “the most responsible course of action.”
