(Worthy News) – The first part of the coalition’s highly controversial judicial overhaul package, which would give the government control over the selection of judges, will be brought for a first reading in the Knesset plenum either this Wednesday or, more likely, next Monday.
The bill, a committee-sponsored amendment to Basic Law: The Judiciary that would give the government an automatic majority on the Judicial Selection Committee and render quasi-constitutional Basic Laws immune from judicial oversight, was approved for sending to the plenum in a tempestuous hearing Monday of the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee.
Justice Minister Yariv Levin’s office said there was no intention of delaying the vote for the first reading despite President Isaac Herzog’s call for a halt in legislative proceedings in order to deliberate the compromise proposals he presented Sunday night.
