"The situation can no longer continue. We are ready and are preparing for elections. We have joined with other groups who have submitted motions to dissolve the Knesset and several such proposals are ready," he said.

Last week, Barak said if Olmert does not leave his post, the Labor party will set an early date for elections.

Olmert is currently under a bribe investigation.
