Plan­ning a trip abroad in 2019 but don’t want to miss vot­ing in Is­raeli elec­tions?

Three new timeta­bles for early elec­tion were set in place by the news of the past week, in­clud­ing the po­lice de­ci­sion to rec­om­mend in­dict­ing Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Ne­tanyahu in Case 4000, the be­gin­ning of Op­er­a­tion North­ern Shield and the Supreme Court de­cid­ing to ex­tend the dead­line to pass the haredi (ul­tra-Or­tho­dox) draft bill to Jan­uary 15.

Gil Hoff­man ex­plains why, as a re­sult of both Jewish and Mus­lim hol­i­days, Tues­day, June 18 is the only date for the elec­tion that would re­ally work be­tween now and Septem­ber.

If the coali­tion re­mains to­gether, elec­tions are slated for Novem­ber.
