300 anti-overhaul protesters rally near Likud MK Edelstein’s home
Some 300 anti-overhaul protesters are holding a rally near Likud MK Yuli Edelstein’s home in Herzliya, upping the pressure on Edelstein to take a stronger stand against the government plan to radically reshape the balance between the parliament and the judiciary.
Edelstein has previously urged the coalition to pause the legislative process to facilitate negotiations with the opposition, and even skipped several votes on bills, earning himself sanctions from the coalition.
“It is time to topple the dictator” is written on one of the signs, according to Ynet, with another saying: “Democracy or rebellion.”
