Likud’s internal faction meeting is currently in recess, to allow MKs to vote on the Knesset floor against no-confidence measures against the government staged by opposition parties.
Sources within the meeting say that the discussion was divided, but not stormy.
MKs will reconvene after the three no-confidence votes to hold their own vote on whether or not to support Constitution, Law and Justice Committee head Simcha Rothman’s latest proposal on remaking the judicial appointment process.
Several lawmakers were frustrated over not being brought into a policy-crafting process they are now being asked to support, with at least one MK poised to vote in the faction against supporting the new direction.
Lawmakers’ phones were confiscated during the nearly three-hour-long discussion.
