The legislative process to formally dissolve the Knesset kicked into high gear on Tuesday. Coalition whip MK Boaz Toporovsky (Yesh Atid) and New Hope faction leader MK Sharren Haskel met with the Knesset Speaker’s Committee on Tuesday morning in order to ensure that the proposal to dissolve the Knesset will be inserted into Wednesday’s plenum schedule.

Dissolution bill

The Likud bill for the Knesset’s dissolution brought forward by MK Shlomo Karhi is scheduled to reach the plenum floor on Wednesday as well, but the coalition will add its own bill so as not to enable the Likud to take sole credit for the Knesset’s fall.

Private bills need to wait 45 days between their placement on the plenum’s agenda and the initial vote unless decided otherwise by the Knesset Committee. The committee convened on Tuesday afternoon shortly after the bill was put onto Wednesday’s agenda and unanimously approved the exemption of the 45-day wait.
