Attorney general: Petition to deprive PM of mandate should be rejected

In a letter to the High Court of Justice, Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit says he believes a petition to deprive Prime Minister Netanyahu of the mandate to form a government should be rejected out of hand.

Mandelblit argues there is “no justification for judicial interference” in the matter.
