Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has announced that elections for the 19th Knesset will be moved to early 2013 due to economic and security situations in Israel.
Some say this change could be good for Netanyahu, and Netanyahu suggests it’s good for Israel.
According to YNet:
“A shorter election campaign season is preferable over a longer season that could seriously hurt the State of Israel,” he [Netanyahu] said. “After four years, we are moving towards elections.”
