Israel announced the postponement of municipal elections.

Israel announced the postponement of municipal elections.

The Israeli government has decided to postpone municipal elections to the end of February due to the operation in the Gaza Strip.

“The government unanimously decided to sign a decree postponing local elections to February 27, 2024… according to the Israel Defense Forces, 688 reservists who cannot now be demobilized have nominated themselves in 144 local authorities,” the press release says.


Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu noted that these elections have already been postponed, so they should not be canceled, despite wartime, and the postponement to the end of February will allow the maximum number of reservists to take part in them.

 

The decision must be approved by the Knesset Internal Affairs Committee and then by the plenum.
