upcoming elections?

All of the Israeli papers are talking about the possible calling of elctions in Israel right after the summer.This is not  too suprising, as Bibi called for early primaries long before it was necessary.
What is suprising is that Lieberman announced that after the Tal law vote ( on exemptions of Haredi-Arabs  from the draft )  his party will no longer be obligated to be part of the coalition.
It is hard to understand his reasoning.He has no chance to become PM, and he could even lose his slot in a new coalition which Bibi will once again lead.
The polls show a victory for the right wing .How the possible elections play out in light of a possible summer attack on Iran is difficult at this time to calculate.
