Likud Nixes Early Elections

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
The Likud Knesset faction
rejected early elections-to go
to the polls. It has the sup-
port of its coalition
partners, notably the Na-
tional Religious Party
which is riven by interna-
tion dissension and does not
want to face the electorate
at this time.
Ironically, the very issue
on which the opposition
seeks to being down the
government — the state of
the economy — was cited by
the Likud faction executive
as the reason to avoid early
elections.
According to Likud, elec-
tions at a time of economic
crisis would damage the
country. Interior Minister
Yosef Burg of the NRP sup-
ports that view.
He said that the eco-
nomic situation must be
stabilized before the
country can afford the
luxury of general elec-
tions. He explained that
elections are usually
characterized by gov-
ernment financial
"generosity toward the
people" which is out of
the question now.
Likud and its partners
are reacting to signs that
not only the opposition but
some of their own members
are convinced that the gov-
ernment must go to the elec-
torate for a renewed man-
date.
Mordechai Ben-Porat,
minister - without -
portfolio, who resigned from
Premier Yitzhak Shamir's
Cabinet Sunday, said he
would support early elec-
tions if he failed in efforts to
engineer a national unity
government. Last week,
Deputy Premier David Levy
urged early elections, con-
vinced that Likud would
win.
Two members of Likud's
Liberal Party wing, Yit-
zhak Berman and Dror
Siegerman, have an-
nounced publicly that they
support early elections.
Siegerman said that if 60
MKs vote to go to the polls,
he would cast the decisive
61st vote.
At this juncture, how-
ever, the opposition re-
mains four votes short of
the necessary. majority.
The fate of the Likud
government, therefore,
seems to rest on the be-
havior of its least pre-
dictable coalition part-
ner, the Tami party
which holds three Knes-
set seats.
Tami supported the gov-
ernment against three op-
position no-confidence mo-
tions in the Knesset last
week, but only after the
Treasury gave in to a series
of economic demands on be-
half of the party's low in-
come, largely Sephardic
constituency.
This immediately raised
charges of "blackmail" from
other coalition members.
The concessions will be
costly at a time of drastic
budget cutting.
Tami has set a deadline
at the end of February for
an examination of
whether it can achieve
more by working within

the coalition than outside
of it.
Meanwhile, the Labor
Alignment, having failed
repeatedly to depose Likud
on no-confidence motions,
intends to present a bill in
the Knesset next month cal-
ling for new elections.
