Netanyahu calls for early election in 4 months
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday called for early elections in four months during his speech at the Likud convention.

"It is preferable to have a short election campaign of four months that will swiftly return stability to the political ranks," Netanyahu stated, although he did not explicitly mention the September 4 date many have speculated would be the election date.

"Coalition stability has begun to crumble, opening the door to blackmail and populism," Netanyahu stated in justification of early elections. He added that a strong, powerful Likud will bring stability to the country.
