JERUSALEM: Israel’s outgoing coalition government will fast-track a bill to dissolve parliament this week, leading to the country’s fifth election in three years, a cabinet minister said on Tuesday.

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett announced on Monday that he would break his coalition of eight ideologically diverse parties, a year after taking office, and send the country to an election. Several defectors from his Yamina party snatched the coalition from its majority in parliament.
