The Knesset's Joint House and Law rejected the central election committee's demand that the upcoming national referendum's election day be a public holiday, due to the high costs for the Israeli economy.

The Committee, however, approved the proposal requiring a national referendum be held before any further territorial concessions are made (2008-09-05).
