Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's top ministers are squabbling, a deadline looms for contentious legislation that may bring down his government and a corruption indictment could be just around the corner.Though Netanyahu hasn't committed yet, conditions appear ripe for him to schedule the vote, nearly a year ahead of schedule.Israel's Supreme Court has dictated a Dec. 2 deadline to get the law passed and if his divided coalition partners remain inflexible, Netanyahu could use it as a pretext to dissolve Parliament.With political parties focused on nationwide municipal elections later this month, Netanyahu's final decision will likely come down in November, which would set up an election early next year.The survey found that, if elections were held today, Netanyahu's Likud party would get 32 seats of the 120-seat Knesset a two seat jump from its current level and his current coalition would score a solid majority.Netanyahu has also been grilled about a corruption case involving Israel's telecom giant.If indicted, Netanyahu can expect such calls to grow whether there are elections or not.
