Knesset votes to dissolve itself, finalizes election

The second and third reading of the bill to dissolve the Knesset passed overnight Monday with 100 in favor and none opposed, over five months after it passed a nearly identical bill in its first reading before opposition leader Shaul Mofaz (Likud) joined the coalition at 2 a.m.
With the bill's passage, general elections were officially set for January 22, 2013.
