Israeli PM reaches deal with allies to avert early election

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has reached a compromise with his coalition allies that could prevent early elections.

On Monday, a parliamentary committee approved a controversial bill to extend military draft immunities to ultra-Orthodox men.

Earlier, Benjamin Netanyahu said that "there was no reason" for an early vote "if there is good will."

While the Israeli media suggested that early elections may be held in June and that the ongoing corruption investigation could spoil Netanyahu's chances of winning those elections.
