Labor Secretary-General Eitan Cabel said that although the preferred date for general elections is March, he could not rule out moving the vote to late February. Cabel told Israel Radio on Wednesday morning that the Labor party would make every effort to come to an agreement on the issue with the other factions, including Shinui and Shas. However, Cabel did not think that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon would try to push off the decision. Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom said that the March date works for him as well, and saw no reason to defer the vote, Army Radio reported.
