The Knesset has voted in favor of a dispersal bill in a preliminary reading on Monday evening.

The vote passed with 65 votes in favor and 43 against.

Earlier, the Knesset Organizing Committee voted on Monday evening to permit Knesset plenum to vote on the bill and initiate an election on August 27.

The bill will be debated on Monday evening in the plenum and will come to a vote in a preliminary reading. It will then be legislated in a special committee created for that purpose and then will be set to go off to another vote in the plenum late Monday or early Tuesday.

The final readings of the bill will only be brought on Wednesday night leaving plenty of time for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Yisrael Beiteinu leader Avigdor Liberman leader to reach an agreement to form a government and avoid an election.
