Likud MK Danny Danon on Wednesday said he was able to gather the required signatures to convene a Likud Central Committee meeting over the rising prices of basic goods.

"The Likud Central Committee calls on its elected members in the Knesset and the government to heed to the social needs of the people and lead to a social revolution," Danon said.

Danon continued: "An active process will minimize the damage to the weaker sectors of the population and will prevent the erosion of the middle class. Elected officials in the government and the Knesset must lead an equal taxation policy in Israel, eliminate water corporations which are causing an increase in prices and to reduce the tax of gasoline."

Danon plans on bringing the proposal to a discussion and vote during the committee meeting.
