The Knesset will hold an emergency discussion of expected budget cuts and statements by Finance Minister Yair Lapid, after Labor faction chairman Isaac Herzog gathered the requisite signatures Tuesday to call a meeting during the Knesset's recess.

A date for the meeting has yet to be set, but Herzog showed the 50 signatures to Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein, who acquiesced to the request to have a plenum discussion on the budget.
