The bill to dissolve the Knesset was frozen late Monday night after Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and opposition leader Shaul Mofaz agreed to create a unity government with the Likud and Kadima parties.

Despite passing a Knesset and Knesset House Committee vote, the bill that would have dispersed the 18th Knesset was not brought to a final vote in the Knesset, despite being slated to do so on Monday night.As part of the agreement between Netanyahu and Mofaz, the latter would join Netanyahu's government, in a move that will delay early elections.

One possibility for the new government is that Yisrael Beytenu, currently a part of the coalition, would not remain in the government.

Netanyahu and Mofaz will update their respective parties of the development Monday overnight.
