Following a heated discussion regarding the vote for the Regulation Law, Minister of Justice Ayelet Shaked announced today (Sunday) that the law will be voted on this evening in the Ministerial Committee for Legislation meeting despite Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s request to postpone it.
As reported earlier by JOL, the Prime Minister asked Shaked and Education Minister Naftali Bennett to postpone the vote, fearing that it might harm the Supreme Court’s efforts to reach a decision on the issue. Three Likud ministers, Miri Regev, Ze’ev Elkin and Gila Gamliel, stated that they would vote in favor of the law due to ideological reasons if the vote is conducted today.
However, the three asked Bennett to consider the Prime Minister’s request. Meanwhile, Coalition Chairman David Bitan stated that following the decision, he will veto all legislation by Ha-Bayit Ha-Yehudi and Kulanu MKs, except for the Regulation Law. “Shaked and the Ministry of Finance consistently stop Likud legislation,” said Bitan.
