The second and third reading of the bill to dissolve the Knesset passed overnight Monday with 100 in favor and none opposed, 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.

With the bill's passage, general elections were officially set for January 22, 2013.
