If the Gaza operation continues, Likud and Labor primaries and possibly the general election should be postponed, so as to not risk the lives of citizens at the polls, Environmental Protection Minister Gilad Erdan said at a cultural event in Ness Ziona on Saturday.

"It is important to currently keep the nation united around the effort to restore security. After [the operation ends], each person could go out and vote for who they think is worthy to lead," Erdan said.
