The vote in a preliminary reading on the proposal to dissolve the Knesset will be held today (Wednesday).
The MKs and ministers referred in interviews to the various media to the political tension ahead of the fateful meeting.
Coalition chairman Mickey Zohar told the High Court: "The conduct of Blue and White, and especially Justice Minister Avi Nissenkorn, did not connect the parties in the government, but to say that the prime minister had no intention of abiding by the agreement - a complete lie."

Opposition leader Yair Lapid, on the other hand, commented on the possibility of reconnecting with Gantz:
I cleared the way for Ganz, when he was the head of the largest party.
Such a connection could lead to an election victory. "The remarks were made in an interview on 103FM.
Minister Zeev Elkin of the Likud addressed the issue of the budget in "Here News": "A biennial budget was our request in the negotiations.
When we came to deal with the budget in the summer, senior finance officials said that the 2020 and 2021 budgets should be separated because of the uncertainty.
You can return from your request, you can delete demands you demanded. "Elkin called on Blue and White to" mobilize for the approval process and not vote to dissolve the Knesset "so that there will be a budget.
Minister Yizhar Shai, a blue-and-white man, raised a different scenario in a conversation with the GLC: "There is no need to go to the polls if the government can be replaced within the existing Knesset. There are contacts about this all the time but apparently they have not yet matured."
"It is better to go to the polls to end this than to be dragged into a year of fights," MK Ayelet Shaked told the GLC from the right.
"Netanyahu dismantled the right-wing bloc. Bennett is the only one who can serve as Israeli prime minister. He is the only one who can get us out of the mud. We are a governmental alternative, not taking some of the strange blocs that have been created: 'Only Bibi' and 'Only not Bibi'."
