Herzog announces he will address nation this evening
President Isaac Herzog announces he will be delivering an address to the nation at 8 p.m. this evening.
Herzog has emerged as a key figure in recent weeks in calling for and hosting dialogue to work toward a compromise on the government’s judicial overhaul plan.
Earlier this week, Herzog said the sides were “closer than ever” to reaching a deal, though his office denied a series of leaks of the text of a purported deal on Tuesday.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is currently on an official visit to Italy.
