Voting resumed in the Constitutional Committee - and with them the uproar: "Don't try me" - voila! news


The committee chaired by Simcha Rothman renewed the votes on changing the composition of the committee for selecting judges. The opposition was furious with Rotman for denying the right to speak to all members of the Knesset. MK Elharer told the chairman of the committee that she would not try him and he replied: "What are these threats?"

The Constitution Committee of the Knesset renewed the votes this morning (Wednesday) on the proposal to change the composition of the Committee for the Selection of Judges and on the thousands of objections submitted by the opposition.

Members of the Knesset from the opposition asked to speak at the beginning of the debate, but the chairman of the committee, MK Simcha Rotman, insisted on allowing only one representative from each faction to speak.

MK Karin Elharer Mish Atid was furious that she was not allowed to speak and told Rothman: "Don't try me."

Rothman was furious and replied to her: "What are these threats?

Violent language." Alharar replied back: "Are you becoming sensitive?

What threat?".

The votes may last for many hours, even though Rothman used an unusual procedure tonight in which the reservations are voted on in a concentrated manner.

During the night, the Knesset's Constitution Committee convened to vote on more than 5,000 reservations submitted by the opposition to the new version of the bill to change the composition of the Committee for the Selection of Judges.

Early in the morning, the members of the opposition decided as a sign of protest not to continue justifying the reservations they submitted - and left the committee hall.

In the meantime, the Knesset committee is expected to exceptionally approve this morning additional days in which the plenary will work to approve legislation before going into recess.

This coming Sunday, votes will be held in the plenum starting at 16:00 in the afternoon, even though the plenum does not meet on Sundays.

A day later, votes will be held as early as 10:00 am instead of 4:00 pm, and it is possible that the plenary will remain open for votes until next Thursday.

On Sunday, April 2, the last day of the Knesset before going into recess, the plenary session will open at 10:00 am.

The coalition aims to pass by then the change in the composition of the committee for the selection of judges in the second and third reading, as well as other laws such as the hametz law, the fortification law that will be approved tonight by the Knesset and more.
