The Knesset last week approved a one-week deferral in the date of the coming municipal elections, reports www.local.co.il. By law, the municipal elections are supposed to be held on the Hebrew date of Heshvan 3, but this year that date corresponds with November 4, the secular anniversary of the 1995 murder of prime minister Yitzhak Rabin. Deferring the elections requires the passing of a special law, and last week the Knesset approved that law, postponing the municipal elections to Tuesday, November 11.
