The Constitution Committee discussed the new outline; Rothman: "They can return united after the break" - Voila! news


The chairman of the committee claimed that the coalition "reached out" with the changes introduced in the outline, which are still rejected outright by the opposition - as well as by some members of the coalition. The deputy ombudsman: "Introduces a great deal of politicization to the courts." Barbibai MK Mish Atid: "A proposal that pollutes the judicial system"

The Chairman of the Constitutional Committee, MK Simcha Rothman, said this morning (Monday) that a compromise can be reached regarding the legal revolution after the Knesset recess, with the presentation of the new outline for changing the Committee for Judicial Elections, which was rejected by the opposition and was also criticized by members of the coalition.

The legal advice to the government also warned of the consequences of the legislation and its effect on the independence of the courts.

"There is good news here for the majority voters and the large majority of the people of Israel who are interested and understand that a comprehensive reform change in the appointment of judges is required," Rothman said at the beginning of the debate.

"The bill before the committee, on the one hand, preserves the principles with which we started, we brought a significant and fundamental amendment and what was there will no longer be. The composition of the Supreme Court will be varied and the people will have the ability to influence the selection of judges. On the other hand, what we did yesterday and in the past months is to extend A hand to a large public that did not choose us because our responsibility is also for them, but unfortunately the outstretched hand did not meet a sister's hand and we met exclusion and confiscation."

According to him, "This is another handout, there are over 50 days until the rest of the legislation will continue and there is all this time for negotiations. We can come back here after the break united and we can come back in a very hard fight without reason or basis. The proposal establishes the principle that the people choose the The judges, but he responds to concerns that were sometimes exaggerated. You don't burn down a country for this gap, you boycott a government elected in vain."

On the other hand, the deputy legal adviser to the government, Avital Sompolinski, said at the hearing that the coalition's new proposal does not address the difficulties that arose from the text of the previous proposal.

"This version does not provide a significant solution to the difficulties we pointed out. It introduces a great deal of politicization into the courts," she emphasized.

MK Orna Barbibai (Yesh Atid) said that "your preference instead of bringing peace over an abyss and adopting the President's outline to bring a proposal that pollutes the judicial system.

I don't buy the wailing and moaning of the right-wing trumpeters and you, as far as I'm concerned, are a villain in the Torah's permission and this whole thing cannot exist.

Your mistake is that you do not understand what is happening outside and the public will not let it happen."

A member of her party, MK Yoav Seglovic, added: "I do not want to appoint political judges, I want professional appointments. This proposal is bad in its basis and motives. Shall we talk? This is a corrupt proposal and it shows the coalition you are part of.

Meanwhile, another member of the Knesset from the Likud joined the calls to stop the legislation.

MK Eli Dellal said at the industrialists' conference that "I am calling to stop everything and sit down to talk even with those who don't want to talk, to create a truce, this is also what I said at today's faction meeting.

Negotiating with ourselves is not the right thing, softening with ourselves is not the right thing." Similar calls were also heard from Knesset members Yuli Edelstein and David Bitan.

Tonight, the heads of the coalition announced at the end of their weekly meeting that the structure of the committee for the selection of judges will change until Passover, while the second and third reading vote on the other sections of the legal revolution will be postponed.

The rest of the articles of the reform will be submitted for approval after the start of the summer session of the Knesset - this, according to them, so that they can hold talks with members of the opposition.

In addition to this, Netanyahu pledged last night to the leaders of the ultra-orthodox parties that the increase clause will be advanced until the budget is approved by the Knesset, in accordance with the commitment in the coalition agreements.
