The Knesset is expected to return from its break on October 22, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's coalition is already seeking to promote a list of potentially-controversial law bills.

One such bill proposes to prohibit launching a criminal investigation into an incumbent prime minister with the exception of extremely serious allegations. This bill was proposed by Likud MK David Amsalem.

Another bill, also proposed by Amsalem, states that the Israeli police will not be able to recommend indictments to the State Attorney's Office.

Lastly, a bill by MK David Bitan, the chairman of the coalition, proposes to prohibit recording an individual without their consent.

All of these bills seem to be connected directly to the multiple ongoing probes involving Netanyahu.
