Revolt by Blue and White MKs may see elections called

Blue and White lawmakers may vote against a budget delay later tonight, a move which could cause the Knesset to dissolve Tuesday night and see new elections called in March, according to Channel 12.

The network says MKs in the centrist party are weighing whether to take the step, breaking ranks with party leader Benny Gantz.

The TV report says there are currently around 53 lawmakers in favor of the delay and 53 opposed, with the decisions of individual MKs liable to tip the result.
