Amid “chaos we haven’t seen here for years” in the Knesset, Channel 12’s political reporter says the vote to disperse the Knesset will take place on Thursday at 8 a.m. — “as things stand.”

Daphna Liel explains that there was some concern in the coalition that newly crowned Yamina leader Ayelet Shaked might somehow try to form an alternate government with Benjamin Netanyahu without resorting to elections if the vote didn’t take place tonight. Apparently, that concern has faded or was unfounded.

Army Radio, meantime, notes that Yisrael Beytenu is unwilling to make further concessions to the opposition in order to get the so-called Metro Law passed, and speculates that the current 8 a.m. Thursday dispersal vote time may yet slide back another few hours.
