It will be mentioned that earlier today, the coalition placed on the Knesset table for a second and third reading the basic bill: the judiciary, concerning the change in the composition of the committee for the selection of judges.
The assumption is a routine procedural procedure similar to any bill approved by the committee but does not necessarily indicate its promotion.
However, the opposition attacked Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for this.
The chairman of Yisrael Beitenu Avigdor Lieberman wrote on Twitter that "The meaning is that at any given moment it can come up for a vote and pass in the plenary.
A gun to the head in the full sense of the word." The coalition said in response that this is only a "technical procedure", and there is no intention to advance the bill, just as Netanyahu promised last night - at least until the next summer session of the Knesset after the days of remembrance and independence.
The Knesset clarified that the legal reform bills "approved yesterday by the Constitution Committee, completed the drafting process and were transferred to the Knesset Plenum for adoption on its table already at 18:15 yesterday. The date of the announcement of the adoption in the plenary is subject to the discretion of the Knesset Secretariat.

Yesterday evening, after a dramatic day, Netanyahu announced the delay of the legislation, to give "a time-out for a real opportunity for negotiations".
However, he emphasized that "one way or another we will bring about the reform and strengthen the rights of the individual".
Netanyahu added: "I am aware of the enormous tension that is building up between the two camps and sections of the people. I am attentive to the desire of many citizens to relieve this tension - "We are on the path of a dangerous collision in Israeli society.
We are in the midst of a crisis that endangers the basic unity between us and this requires us all to act responsibly."
Netanyahu did not mention the agreement with National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gabir or the dismissal of Galant - but he did mention Gantz's letter, which called for "committing to enter in good faith into negotiations on According to Netanyahu, "I know there are other people who support this approach and I extend my hand to them."
