Israeli right-wing calls for new elections
Right-wing Likud party leader Benjamin Netanyahu called on Thursday for holding new national elections after Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said he would resign once his ruling Kadima party picks a new leader in September.

"This government has reached an end and it doesn't matter who heads Kadima. They are all partners in this government's total failure. National responsibility requires a return to the people and new elections," Netanyahu, whose opposition party leads in recent opinion polls, told Israeli Radio.
