Labor Party leader Shelly Yacimovich on Tuesday called on Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to call early elections for January 2013.

"Setting an early date will clear up the uncertainty and lack of governability that characterizes the lack of a state budget," Yacimovich stated.

"The new government that will be established will represent a serious and responsible alternative to Netanyahu's policy, which is characterized by the disintegration of the social fabric," she added.

Yacimovich stated that the Labor Party had prepared the proper infrastructure to succeed in elections.
