Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu will meet with the heads of United Torah Judaism as early as Tuesday to round out his meetings with coalition partners ahead of his final decision about initiating early elections.

So far, Shas, Yisrael Beytenu, and Habayit Hayehudi leaders have advised Netanyahu to initiate early elections rather than try to pass the 2013 state budget. United Torah Judaism leader Yaakov Litzman is expected to tell Netanyahu that he prefers early elections to compromising on the budget.
