(Worthy News) – The law that severely restricts the High Court of Justice’s ability to strike down regular Knesset laws is set to pass a vote in the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee on Wednesday.
It could then pass its first reading in the Knesset plenum as soon as next Monday, a spokesperson for committee chairman MK Simcha Rothman confirmed on Saturday night.
The law is the second part of the government’s judicial reform, and, similar to the first part, is an amendment to the Basic Law: The Judiciary. The proposal stipulates that the entire High Court (15 justices) must vote unanimously to cancel a law – and only if the law “directly contradicts a Basic Law.” [ Source: Jerusalem Post (Read More…) ]
