Moshe Feiglin: General Elections in Israel Likely Before Year's End
In my estimation, it is likely that there will be general elections in Israel before the end of the year. True, both the planned broadcasting corporation and the current broadcasting authority must disappear and be replaced with media that is truly free of all state interference. The broadcasting brouhaha, however, has no real connection to the government crisis. Apparently, Netanyahu wants to delay proceedings against him and to renew the legitimacy for his continued incumbency by holding elections - "The nation has spoken". His adversary on the broadcasting issue, Finance Minister Moshe Kachlon, understands that he will not succeed in reducing the cost of apartments as he had promised and that he will lose popularity as a result. It can certainly work for him to go to elections as the person who stood up against Netanyahu's quarrel mongering.
The recent Zehut convention has prepared our party well for the upcoming challenge. In the coming elections, Israeli voters will have a real alternative. They will no longer have to vote against their better judgement for the same despair. Finally, Israeli voters will be able to be enjoy true liberty. Finally, Israel will be able to vote for Zehut.
