Israeli cabinet sets Jan. 22 date for national election

JERUSALEM--Israel's cabinet announced on Sunday a January 22 date for a national election, a ballot that opinion polls predict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will win.

The date needs to be approved by the Knesset, Israel's parliament, which convenes on Monday to vote to dissolve itself and move up an election originally scheduled for October 2013.

"The cabinet unanimously approved the proposal to hold Knesset elections on January 22, 2013," a statement from Netanyahu's office said.
