Likud, Blue and White Agree To Suspend ‘Israeli’ Parliament Dissolution
By Staff, Agencies
Days before the Zionist parliament [Knesset] could potentially disperse, the Likud and Blue and White parties came to an agreement on Sunday to extend negotiations over the occupation entity’s budget until December 31 in an attempt to close the gaps between the sides.
The parties are now likely to quickly advance a bill that will prevent the automatic dissolution of parliament that will come into effect on midnight Tuesday.
“Tomorrow, a bill will be consensually put forward, outlining a schedule according to which a 2020 budget will be passed by [December 31] and a 2021 budget by [January 5, 2021],” Blue and White said in a statement released to the press.
“In the absence of the budgets passing by said dates, the bill stipulates that the Knesset will automatically dissolve and elections will be held on March 23rd, 2021.”
Blue and White stressed that it will exhaust every attempt to arrive at a functioning government, “with a budget that millions of ‘Israelis’ need right now, government appointments, protection of the rule of law, and an absence of the prime minister’s influence on his trial.”
The faction led by Zionist War Minister and Alternate Prime Minister Benny Gantz was referring to a number of disputes that intensified over recent weeks, starting with the entity’s budget that has not been legislated for over a year.
In addition, the occupation entity’s government has come under fire by legal authorities over allegedly dragging its feet in making official appointments in a slew of government positions. Lastly, Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu faces trial over charges of fraud, corruption and breach of public trust -- over which he vehemently denies any wrongdoing.
