Israel passes several judicial reforms on first reading
(Worthy News) – Israel’s parliament, the Knesset, passed on first reading of several reforms to Israel’s judiciary early Tuesday, with 63 votes for the bill and 47 votes against it.
The proposed reforms have split the Israeli public, with the coalition going forward on just some of the controversial measures after public outcry.
This bill would limit the Supreme Court ruling on Basic Laws, which function as Israel’s constitution, while also changing the composition of the committee that selects judges. [ Source: Ynet News (Read More…) ]
