The government will provide millions of shekels to the parties running in the upcoming elections.

Thursday, 30 June 2022 | Israel approved Wednesday the dispersal of the Knesset [Parliament] in the first parliamentary reading, taking the country one step closer to snap elections.

The bill will now proceed to its third reading, which requires a majority approval of 61 votes, where the date of the elections will also be set.

As part of the vote, the Knesset also approved the bill meant to increase funding of political parties in first reading with a majority of MKs [Members of Knesset] voting for the move. If the bill gets final approval, the parties running for Knesset in the upcoming elections will receive NIS 1.6 million for each MK to aid their respective campaigns.

Finance Minister Avigdor Lieberman decided his party will oppose the bill to disperse the Knesset in protest over delay in approval of legislation needed to okay the construction of underground railway, called the “metro bill,” which lead the to end of the session in the plenum.
