President Isaac Herzog confirms that he has spoken to opposition leader Yair Lapid regarding judicial reforms in Israel. Lapid said earlier today that he had urged him to set up a “presidential committee” on the issue.

“As part of the discussions held by the president in recent weeks in an attempt to avoid a historic constitutional crisis and to stop the rift in the nation, the president has also spoken with opposition leader MK Yair Lapid,” Herzog’s office says.

“The president continues in his unending efforts with all relevant actors in a bid to create a wide-ranging respectful dialogue in the hope of reaching a broad understanding,” the statement says.
