Some 500 protesters against the government’s judicial overhaul hold a rally near the Herzliya home of Likud MK Yuli Edelstein, turning up the heat on him to unequivocally come out against the legislative plan.
Yesterday, Edelstein avoided taking part in a vote to prevent the High Court of Justice from having the power to suspend a prime minister from office. He also questioned the current overhaul push.
“Yesterday we saw Edelstein in a display of ‘half-courage,'” protesters say. “That’s more than nothing, but less than what’s needed. Therefore, until Edelstein takes an unequivocal stand, we’re here.”
