Opposition leader Isaac Herzog dared Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday to initiate an election. He said the public has lost faith in the prime minister's government and in him.

"Just this one time instead of threatening – do something," Herzog said.

He also lashed out at Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid, saying that he had realized two years too late that with Netanyahu the country is stuck!

Lapid in his faction meeting, pleaded with Netanyahu not to initiate an election, which he said would harm the economy and halt important socio-economic steps the government is taking.

Labor faction chairman Eitan Cabel said he will monitor political developments before deciding whether to bring the Knesset dispersal bill to a vote on Wednesday.
