Netanyahu Wants an Early Election

It's easier than trying to pass a 2013 budget


JERUSALEM, Oct. 5 (UPI) — Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has decided to call for an early election rather than try to pass a budget for 2013, a Knesset leader said.

Netanyahu had indicated he would make a final decision when the Knesset returns from recess Oct. 15, but people who spoke with the prime minister said he had already decided, The Jerusalem Post reported Thursday.
