Senior officials from Shas announced on Thursday that the party would support the motion for the dissolution of the Knesset, initiated by Knesset Member Silvan Shalom (Likud), at any date in which the motion would be put to a vote.Hmm. In that case, let's hope Labor makes good on their part too, which would be a wise choice for them to make. Over here, it's reported that Ehud Barak has announced that Labor will be supporting the dissolution bill.
MK Shalom told Ynet that following the announcement made by Shas and the earlier announcement to the same effect made by the Labor Party, he would bring his motion to a vote on June 25.
The statements made by Shas and Labor indicate that Shalom's motion is set to have a significant majority in the Knesset's vote, at least in its preliminary reading. If no dramatic political changes take place to cause the Labor Party to retreat from its announcement, there will be over 65 MKs supporting the motion on June 25.
