Meretz leader Zehava Gal-On responded to rumors that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu plans initiate early elections Tuesday evening, saying, "it is time for Netanyahu to redeem the citizens of Israel from his authority. The time has come for a government of the Left."

According to Gal-On, early elections would present "a rare opportunity for Israeli citizens to vote for the only party that understands the close relationship between a political settlement [with the Palestinians], an end to the occupation and economic and social justice."



"Without a strong Meretz presence in the next Knesset," Gal-On insisted, "there will be no social justice and the world will go on as normal."

"Meretz is the heart of the Left," she concluded.
