Netanyahu Postpones Judicial Reform Plan

  • “Netanyahu and [Itamar] Ben Gvir agreed – the legislation will be postponed until the summer conference,” read a tweet from Channel 12 Monday.
  • Gvir is a conservative member of the Knesset and leader of the Otzma Yehudit party, which is part of the coalition that put Netanyahu back in power in December.
  • Netanyahu, who is seeking to expand the Israeli parliament’s lawmaking authority by curbing the Supreme Court’s power, on Sunday fired Defense Minister Yoav Gallant, who had called for a pause in the reforms.
