Israel’s parliament votes to dissolve itself and set March 17 election

JERUSALEM (Reuters) – Israel’s parliament voted on Monday to dissolve itself in preparation for an early general election on March 17, after a crisis set in motion by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s dismissal of two ministers.

The parliament’s vote of 93 to 0 formalized a decision to move forward an election that had not been expected until 2017, in the aftermath of Netanyahu’s Dec. 2 firing of Yair Lapid as finance minister and Tzipi Livni as justice minister.
