Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu may announce early elections on Tuesday night, according to Likud sources. The sources added that elections would be held in January, 2013, and not February 13, 2013, the date that had been previously discussed.

The sources said that Netanyahu would hold elections earlier than scheduled in order to catch his opponents off guard and to minimize damage to the economy.
