Israel’s prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu has dissolved the existing Parliament by removing his finance and justice ministers. The decision has to led to an early election state in the country.
Benjamin Netanyahu said Yair Lapid and Tzipi Livni had “harshly attacked” both himself and the coalition government and that he wanted an election two years back to win a “a clear mandate to lead Israel”. Speaking during a press conference he said, “I will not tolerate an opposition within the government anymore. I will not tolerate ministers attacking government policy from within the government, attacking its leader, motivated by political interests, and being irresponsible at a national level.”
He added that it was impossible to run the government in the current situation calling Ms Livni and Mr Lapid’s activities as a “putsch”.
