Attorney -General Avichai Mandelblit and his team had finished reviewing the legal materials related to the investigations of alleged corruption of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Maariv reported on Thursday.
Mandelbit is expected to refuse holding off the hearing until April, when the elections are due to take place.
"In the most crucial decision in the history of Israeli law, a process that should take 20 months is being squeezed to a few days," the Prime Minister's office said.
"It seems the A.G. gave in to the pressure used by the left and the media to indict Prime Minister Netanyahu at all cost - ahead of elections," the statement went on to say.
