Daylight Saving Time will be extended by 11 days next year, and will end on October 6, 2013, according to legislation prepared by the Knesset Internal Affairs and Environment Committee for its second and third (final) plenum readings.

According to the bill, which passed a vote in the committee with three in favor and one opposed, DST will begin on the Friday before the last Sunday in March and end on the first Sunday after October 1, making it 193 days instead of 182.

Although the Knesset was dissolved on Monday, the government can call plenum and committee in order to pass bills. The legislation extending DST is expected to become law before the election in January.
