A number of senior figures in the current coalition are meeting currently to discuss making changes to the highly contentious legislation to overhaul the judiciary.

Those at the meeting are reportedly discussing a framework put forward today by Religious Zionism MK Simcha Rothman to alter the current bill that radically changes how judges are selected.

According to reports, the coalition is expected to agree to place its focus in the coming weeks solely on the bill to change the judicial selection committee, and push off the other legislation until after Passover in mid-April.
