Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has told coalition partners he will suspend judicial reform in the country, prompting a wave of protests. According to the local Kan broadcaster, Israeli Justice Minister and main ideologue of the bill, Yariv Levin, realized that “there is no other choice”.
It was noted that only National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir, who called on Netanyahu not to halt the procedure for passing the bill, remained to be convinced of the advisability of canceling the reform.
Recall that on Sunday, March 26, approximately 630,000 people took to the streets of Israel to express their disagreement with the judicial reform. It is a question of limiting the powers of the Supreme Court and placing the appointment of judges under the control of the government, which is contrary to the principle of separation of powers.
