Opinion Netanyahu and the ombudsman: it will end in an ugly parting | Israel Hayom


The Prime Minister does not plan to fire Gali Bharve-Miara at this stage • But what is quite clear already, is that it cannot work like this - the separation is just around the corner

The story of this relationship can be started from the end: it will end in an ugly breakup.

In fact, this match - the legal adviser to the government and the Netanyahu government - did not have much of a chance from the beginning.

Beharve-Miara was appointed in the Bennet-Lapid government, and the one pushing for her appointment more than anything was one of Netanyahu's clear political opponents - Gideon Sa'ar.

This starting point left no chance for a normal relationship.

In the first month of the establishment of the government, the relations between the parties were known to be up and down.

There were no increases and there will be no increases.

In the past, the MKs saw legal advice as an authority in its field. Times have changed.

This is a coalition full of people who came from the field of law - Tali Gottlieb, Moshe Saada, Amir Ohana, Simcha Rothman, Itamar Ben Gabir, and also people with a sharp legal agenda, such as Smotrich and Yariv Levin.

The legal issue opened up to other thoughts, agendas - and conflicts.

A lot of confrontations.

Around the Prime Minister, there are increasing voices calling for him to fire the ombudsman, but Netanyahu refuses.

Both he and Levin are trying to do everything to keep the legal reform as a substantive issue only, one that is not related to the legal issues of Netanyahu and Deri.

He also does not want it to be seen as a personal revenge against the ombudsman, so at this stage dismissal is out of the question.

But the key words are "at this point".

The road is lined with explosions and disputes.

The reform is moving at 300 km/h. No one in the coalition wants to stop. The accident is around the corner. It is possible that the consultant will feel that she is irrelevant, and even humiliated.

It may be that the coalition will decide after passing the reform that it is time to say goodbye.

What is quite clear already is that it cannot work that way.

The breakup is just around the corner.
