Israeli leaders Naftali Bennett and Yair Lapid revealed that they would hold a vote to dissolve the Knesset in the coming days.
The two leaders said they decided to dissolve Knesset because recent efforts to salvage the government have failed.
According to reports, the government will submit a bill to dissolve itself next week and call for new elections.
The two leaders said during the interim, Lapid will become prime minister as per the rotation agreement and will greet President Joe Biden during his visit on July 13.
They added that elections for the 25th Knesset would be held on 30 Tishrei.
Israeli political experts said Naftali Bennett would become the shortest-serving prime minister in Israel’s history, which Lapid would break if he did not remain in power following the elections.
To offer more explanation on this move, Bennett and Lapid will address the public on Monday at 8 p.m. Israel time.
