Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett will not run in the upcoming elections, the AP reported.

The government announced last week that it would dissolve the Knesset ahead of elections expected this fall, but the necessary vote for dissolution has been stalled due to disagreements with the opposition.

Bennett's office said that he has informed members of his right-wing Yamina party that he will not run in the next elections, which are expected in October or November. He will continue to serve as deputy prime minister in an interim government headed by Yair Lapid, currently foreign minister.
