The first reading of the bill to dissolve the Knesset passed with 99 in favor and none opposed Monday night, over five months after it passed a nearly identical bill in its first reading before opposition leader Shaul Mofaz (Likud) joined the coalition at 2 a.m.
The bill was sent to the Knesset House Committee to be approved for a second and third (final) vote.
