Israel’s Knesset will hold preliminary votes in two weeks on two bills calling for the dissolution of Parliament and holding early elections. The Knesset recently defeated a similar bill, but Speaker Avraham Burg approved holding the votes after legal advisers said that in light of the changed political circumstances in Israel, the Knesset regulations requiring a six-month waiting period could be waived.
