Likud Warns About Heading to Elections

Likud admits: this is the only thing holding the government together

In the Likud, there are warnings about the idea of heading to elections around the time of the judicial reform and the Conscription Law: "Today's elections are the surefire way to the collective suicide of the right-wing camp"

Following the recent idea that has surfaced, suggesting that Israel will go to elections in a format of a referendum on the judicial reform and the Conscription Law, warnings from the ruling party highlight the potential political suicide. Polls conducted since the last election indicate that the right-wing has lost 10-12 mandates.

According to a report on the 'Maariv' website, sources within the Likud party have emphasized that "today's elections are the surefire way to the collective suicide of the right-wing camp. Today, as the right-wing is at its lowest point, polls are the strongest adhesive of the incumbent coalition."

According to senior figures in the Likud, what needs to be done now is to set aside the contentious issues and focus on other problems that concern the entire population: "The reform issue should be set aside, and if it is to be advanced – only with consensus."

"From now on, we must invest in rehabilitating the position of this government. Only after achieving successes in the areas of the economy and personal security of the citizens, and when we manage to improve the situation in the Arab society - only then can we consider elections. At present, we have no public trust left, it has all been squandered in the saga of the reform," said the concerned sources.
