Netanyahu to Host Last Ditch Talks to Save Crumbling Coalition

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu speaks at the Economic Club of Washington Wednesday

Efforts to prevent early elections in Israel intensified on Tuesday as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, facing possible indictment for corruption, considered his next moves.

According to the Times of Israel, the compromise involves a vote on a bill that would exempt ultra-Orthodox Israelis from military service in exchange for a vote on the 2019 budget for the Israeli government that would avoid early elections from occurring before 2019.

Netanyahu had not yet commented on the agreement.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is reportedly attempting last-minute efforts to prevent elections before the vote on the IDF draft bill on Tuesday evening.

On Sunday, some of his coalition partners accused him for not trying hard enough to solve the political dispute in order to force snap elections that would help him survive corruption investigations.

They have threatened retaliation: If the bill does not pass, the parties said they won't vote to approve the country's 2019 budget, which both Netanyahu and Economy Minister Moshe Kahlon, head of the Kulanu party, have identified as a high priority.

PSG owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi added: 'Neymar is happy, highly motivated and excited to come back as soon as possible. The reports in Spanish media are also stating that Nike will have a big impact on the move.

The ultra-Orthodox parties, which possess 13 of the government's 66 seats in the 120-seat parliament, threaten to leave the coalition if a law granting ultra-Orthodox men exemption from conscription fails to pass.

"It was scary, eh", Netanyahu said to the opposition just after the decision.

But while Netanyahu's future dominated the conversation, the resolution of the crisis hinged on separate, more technical issues.

Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked (Jewish Home) warned Netanyahu against calling early elections, saying that doing so would bring down a right-wing government.

Separately and perhaps equally as important, Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman opposes the conscription bill and wants to see ultra-Orthodox men serve in the military like their secular counterparts.

When, not if, the current government of Israel breaks up, the formal cause of it will the stance of Avigdor Lieberman, the defense minister and leader of the Yisrael Beitinu party.

The conscription bill advanced in the Knesset by a vote of 59-38; in mid-April the Knesset is expected to take up the Defense Ministry version combined with the current bill.

Three of his former associates have signed state witness deals with police.

The other alleges he sought a secret deal with the publisher of a top-selling newspaper for favourable coverage.

Netanyahu has denied wrongdoing in all of the cases, accusing prosecutors, police and the media of conspiring to oust him.

Watching Netanyahu address the Knesset the other day I found it impossible not to be impressed by his stamina and his arguments why he's the best possible prime minister of Israel and his coalition a reflection of it.

He is not required to step down if indicted - only after he is convicted with all appeals exhausted - though political pressure would surely mount.
