Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz on Tuesday condemned the lack of stability in the Israeli political system, hinting that he was against the prospect of early elections.

Speaking at a finance committee meeting, Steinitz said that "it looks like we're sliding towards early elections. This phenomenon, consistent with the last 25 years, can not be ignored. Elections are always early."

"We need to ensure the future in a way that makes us more stable," he said, "either by changing the parliamentary system or by adopting a presidential system."

Steinitz added that he hopes the government will find a way to work out their disagreements, but stated that if they don't he hopes the next Knesset will find a way to ensure greater stability in the Israeli political system.
