The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) announced Thursday that the Tal Law will not be voted on by the cabinet next Sunday, despite statements last week to the contrary.

PM Binyamin Netanyahu had said that the law, which expires in August 2012, would not be extended for another five years. However, following internal disputes within his Cabinet, he later announced that the law would be extended for another five years.

Officials at the PMO said that there is no need for a government debate on the matter, as it will be discussed in the Knesset ahead of the vote over its five-year extension.
