The Knesset will begin the process of dispersing itself Wednesday with the support of the Likud, party sources said Tuesday, in a step that will expedite the next election.

Labor, Meretz and other opposition factions submitted a bill on Monday. It must pass in three readings and in committee, a process that is likely to take a week.

The factions will have to decide on a date for the race, expected to take place in mid-March.
