‘Israeli’ Parliament [Knesset] Speaker Yariv Levin stipulated Monday that the government hasn’t yet solved its problems and that elections could yet be on the table.

Meanwhile, Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin “Netanyahu said explicitly that we need to make a supreme effort to avoid elections,” Levin said in an interview with the ‘Israeli’ Army Radio.

“I hope that’s how it will unfold, but the understanding is that by mutual silence and disagreement we won’t get far,” Levin added. “We are still far from solving the problem.”

Levin was referring to the worst crisis the coalition has faced since its inception in May. The ongoing disagreement between Netanyahu and War Minister Benny Gantz over the budget -- due to pass until August 24 -- could lead to dispersing parliament.

However, on Sunday night, independent lawmakers Zvi Hauser and Yoaz Hendel put forth a bill that would allow the Knesset to delay the budget vote by two months.

Netanyahu reportedly agreed to submit the bill to the Knesset on Wednesday.
