Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today (Monday) informed the heads of the coalition of his decision to stop the advancement of the legal revolution, despite the opposition of Justice Minister Yariv Levin and National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gabir.

Senior officials in the coalition said that Levin would not resign from his position, despite the intention to temporarily stop the legislation.

As part of the stalling of the legislation, "Deri Law 2", which is supposed to allow Shas Chairman Aryeh Deri to serve as minister despite the High Court ruling, is not expected to pass in the current session. Netanyahu was supposed to

update the coalition leaders on the decision at the meeting that convened this morning, but it was extended Due to pressure from Justice Minister Yariv Levin on Religious Zionist Chairman Bezalel Smotrich and Otzma Yehudit Chairman Itamar Ben Gabir, who will threaten Netanyahu to dissolve the government if the plan is stopped. Ben Gabir warned that "stopping the legislation will lead to the dissolution of the government", but at the end of the meeting It was decided that Netanyahu knew about it during the day.

Minister Nir Barkat of the Likud called on all members of the coalition to support Netanyahu in stopping the legislation.

"We must not bring about the overthrow of the right-wing government with our own hands," he said.

"Our strength is in our unity."

Following the sharp public reaction to Defense Minister Yoav Galant's dismissal announcement, pressure began last night in Likud, the coalition and the Prime Minister's circle to announce an immediate halt to the legislation, but Justice Minister Yariv Levin waged a restraining battle in nightly talks in his opposition to any halt, with the backing of members of Otzma Yehudit and religious Zionism.

In a statement issued this morning by the Religious Zionist Party, headed by Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich, it was stated that "after much deliberation and consultation, our position is that the legislation should not be stopped in any way."

According to her, even though she supports negotiations, it would be a "surrender to violence".

However, she did not say how she would act if the legislation was indeed stalled.

Ben Gvir also called not to stop the legislation.

"This day, nothing happened in Israel. The votes of the pilots are worth more than the votes of Golani and the MGB.

The votes of Tzalah are worth more than the votes of Dimona and Beer Sheva, and the votes of the high-tech people are worth more than the manual laborers.

The reform of the judicial system must not be stopped and we must not surrender to anarchy," he wrote on Twitter.

On the other hand, the chairman of the Israel Beitenu party, MK Avigdor Lieberman, called on Likud members to support the establishment of a new government not headed by Netanyahu. "It turns out that it is working.

No dictator is capable of standing up to a broad and just public protest that encompasses all parts of the population," he wrote on Twitter. I hope that at 10:30 past the stoppage of the legislation, we will hear about the resignation of the Prime Minister and the Minister of Justice. If not, I call on my friends in Likud, for the benefit of the state Israel to oust Netanyahu and form a new coalition consisting of Zionist parties, with the prime minister coming from the ranks of the Likud."

The pressure on Netanyahu to stop the legislation has intensified since yesterday evening, with his decision to fire Galant, which brought tens of thousands of protesters to the streets.

This morning, President Yitzhak Herzog called on the coalition and the opposition and said: "Come to your senses now! This is not a political moment, this is a moment for leadership and responsibility."

He urged the coalition to stop the legislative process immediately.

During the night, the United States also urged the Israeli leadership to reach a compromise as soon as possible, and expressed concern about the developments surrounding Gallant's dismissal.

Despite the expectation that the legislation would be halted, the Chairman of the Constitution Committee, MK Simcha Rothman, continued discussions this morning on the law to change the composition of the Committee for Judicial Elections in preparation for its approval for second and third reading.

Opposition members tried to disrupt the vote and told him "You are living in a movie. Stop now", but he ignored it.
