The Ynet news site reports the coalition is holding discussions on the proposed draft law this morning after Attorney General Gali Baharav-Miara reportedly warned that she would be unable to defend the proposal.

The outlet says that setting annual quotas for conscripting graduates of Haredi educational institutions is among the potential areas for adjustment in the proposed legislation.

According to Channel 12 news, Baharav-Miara told Cabinet Secretary Yossi Fuchs yesterday that the law as written would leave her unable to defend it should it be challenged in court, due to unspecified “significant and essential difficulties.”
