Knesset passes law shielding Netanyahu from court-ordered recusal 61-47

Thursday, March 23, 2023 | Tag Cloud

(Worthy News) – The Knesset passed into law a bill that would protect Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu from a court order to recuse himself, in an early Thursday morning final vote of 61 Knesset members in favor and 47 against.

The bill passed its second and third (final) readings following hours-long, heated discussions in the plenum that stretched into the early morning.

The opposition had filed numerous objections to the bill, which was fast-tracked in Knesset’s House Committee, and promised to stage a fiery filibuster against the legislation, seen as being “tailored” to save Netanyahu from potential legal trouble. The stalling proved to be largely symbolic, as the bill’s sponsor, Likud faction chairman MK Ofir Katz, agreed with the opposition to limit debate on the recusal bill to a maximum of 16 hours. Deliberations began Wednesday night, and the law passed around 6 a.m. Thursday. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More…) ]
