Hanegbi to remain Minister of Telecommunication
Esther Hayut to become next President of Israeli Supreme Court after Naor retiresAssociate justice of the Israeli Supreme Court Esther Hayut is expected to become the next President of the Supreme Court after none of the other associate justices agreed to take the position.
Yesterday (Friday), after it was still unclear whether she would be appointed as the next President of the Israeli Supreme Court by seniority, it was decided that associate justice Esther Hayut will assume the position in six months.
None of the associate justices of the Supreme Court agreed to become the next president and break the seniority method. Therefore, Hayut is expected to take over the job when Miriam Naor retires in October.
However, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked is still not expected to give up on appointing two conservative judges who are in line with her views to the Supreme Court instead of two other associate justices who are expected to retire.
