Peres says there is no need to hold elections

Vice Premier Shimon Peres said Monday following the publication of the Winograd Committee's report on the Second Lebanon War that there was neither a need nor the requisite majority in the Knesset to disband the government and hold elections. "A government is not a PR firm," Peres said. "It has to make decisions." "What should we do? Enter a crisis?" he asked Channel 10 interviewers. "Elections would serve no purpose," he added.
