November 1, 2011 14:00

Kadima on Tuesday submitted a request to the Knesset House Committee to expedite legislation calling for a new budget for 2012.

The faction emphasized in the request that " cosmetic changes will not suffice to give a real answer to the demands for social justice."

"The Knesset must vote on a new budget that reflects new priorities which will answer the social and economic crises in Israel," Kadima added.

The Knesset Committee for Legislation was expected to give the government's opinion on the Kadima request at its upcoming meeting on Sunday, Kadima said in a statement.
