Rivlin: Pillar of Defense likely to postpone election
Knesset Speaker Reuven Rivlin suggested that the upcoming election may be postponed in light of the Gaza conflict.
"If Operation Pillar of Defense continues, and will force us to postpone
the primaries in the Likud and Labor, which are planned for next week,
there will be no escaping pushing off the election for the 19th Knesset,
which was set for January 22nd," Rivlin told Yisrael Hayom.
Likud primary is planned for next November 25, and Labor's will be next
November 29, unless they are postponed because of the military
The Knesset Speaker said a decision about pushing off primaries must be made by this Thursday.
