Deputy minister accuses High Court of seeking ‘judicial dictatorship’

Deputy Education Minister Meir Porush, of the Netanyahu-aligned United Torah Judaism party, accuses the High Court of “seeking to form a judicial dictatorship in Israel” after it essentially sought to compel Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein to hold a vote on his own replacement.

Porush urges Edelstein not to cooperate with “the court harming publicly elected officials,” calling on him to “prevent the intervention by the judges, important as they may be.”
