President Isaac Herzog says that his alternative judicial reform proposal achieves a balance that can protect all segments of Israeli society.
“The outline that I am presenting today is a golden path, which brings together in a proper, decent, balanced and constructive manner the perceptions, beliefs, worries and concerns,” Herzog says.
Herzog says it’s designed so that no one side can declare victory. “I have already said: if only one side wins — the State of Israel will lose.”
Herzog emphasizes that power will still reside in the Knesset, but that his framework will ensure a balance between the different branches of government.
