Netanyahu says Likud will oppose dissolving Knesset, wants ‘unity’

Prime Minister Netanyahu says his Likud party will vote against a bill to dissolve Knesset, stressing its commitment to “unity” to address the coronavirus pandemic and to reach further normalization deals with Arab states.

“On Wednesday the opposition will try to drag Israel to unnecessary elections. Likud will vote against elections and in favor of unity,” he says during a faction meeting.

Netanyahu adds: “The citizens of Israel need a government that acts not for elections, not for politics, but rather for them.”
