Exactly one month after the 19th Knesset was sworn in the plenum has been asked to vote on its dissolution.
Ynet learned Monday that the ultra-Orthodox United Torah Judaism
Party presented the House with the bill, demanding general election be held within 90 days.
In their brief, UJT explained that they are asking that the Knesset be dissolved because "The State of Israel
would be run by irresponsible individuals, motivated by nothing by their hatred of others."
UTJ MK Uri Maklev, who drafted the bill, explained that, "The State of Israel is in the midst of a highly complex time: The Iranian
threat is growing and our Palestinian neighbors are garnering international support for their demand for an Arab state," he wrote in his brief.
Maklev also noted the upsets in the Arab regimes surrounding Israel, especially the civil war in Syria;
the complex economic situation and the upcoming budget cuts, as reasons why new elections must be called.
"The results of the last elections were unclear and inconclusive and many parties won a relatively small number of mandates."
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu,
the party said, "Announced he would form a government that would unit parties from all across the political spectrum… But Yesh Atid and Habayit Hayehudi
have effectively forced him into a coalition of a certain nature.
"This government will not be able to deal with any of the burning issues. It will be run by inexperienced people who are motivated only by their hatred for others, their need to impose their opinions and boycott minorities."
MK Maklev warned that "The lack of governability therefore endangers Israel's economy and security. We hereby move for the dissolution of the 19th Knesset and call for general election within 90 days."
