Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu did not intend to indicate the date of the next general election when he said in his speech to the United Nations General Assembly Thursday that the world's red line for preventing Iran's nuclearization must be next spring, sources close to Netanyahu said Sunday.

Prior to the speech, the main factor in Netanyahu's decision was thought to be whether he could pass the 2013 state budget, which must pass in the cabinet and be submitted to the Knesset by November 1.

Netanyahu's associates had said that if he could obtain enough support from coalition partners, he would pass the budget and elections could take place on time in October 2013. But if he saw he could not pass the budget, he could initiate an election when the Knesset returns from its recess October 15 that could be held as early as January.
