National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gvir says he is in favor of negotiations on the judicial overhaul, but against “surrender.”
“The reform is important to the State of Israel. It will balance the three authorities — the legislative, the executive and the judiciary,” he says. “Surrendering in the President’s Residence would mean humiliating more than half the nation… harming right-wing values.”
Ben Gvir says that his party “will not support this surrender. I call on my fellow coalition heads to make their voices heard, let us oppose this caving and surrender.”
Ben Gvir’s comments follow reports claiming that negotiations brokered by the President’s Residence have restarted.
