After the Likud refused to establish the Ethics Committee in the previous Knesset as part of their protest and the boycott of the committees at the time, Knesset Speaker Amir Ohana announced this evening (Tuesday) that he will establish the Ethics Committee in the Knesset tomorrow.
With the establishment of the committee, a request will be submitted to authorize the thawing of the donation money collected for the Netanyahu trial and with the ethics committee's authority to authorize the Prime Minister to receive the money.
The Ethics Committee is a quasi-judicial committee that judges members of the Knesset for ethical violations, including statements and abnormal behavior.
The Ethics Committee can impose sanctions on Hakims such as limiting their parliamentary activities, removal from the plenary and more.

The Speaker of the Knesset, Amir Ohana, stated that "the ethics committee is a central pillar in the normal and ongoing activity of the Knesset.
I thank the Knesset members from both the opposition and the coalition who agreed to take on the role.
I see the committee's work as very important to help bring to the Mishkan - and hopefully also out to the public - proper conduct and respectful dialogue between each other.
I invite the members of the Knesset to assist the committee with any question they need, and on this occasion I would like to wish the members of the committee great success in fulfilling their duties."
The members of the committee, who agreed to Ohana's proposal to serve on the committee, are MK Yanon Azoulai (Shas), who will serve as chairman of the committee, MK Amit Halevi (Likud), MK Panina Tamno-Sheta (the state camp) and MK Meir Cohen (Yesh Atid).
