High Court rejects opposition petition against makeup of Knesset committees

The High Court of Justice rejects a petition filed three months ago by six opposition lawmakers against the “unfair” makeup of Knesset committees, ruling that after changes were made since the complaint was filed, the remaining gaps don’t call for judicial intervention.

The petition by four members of the Likud party and two members of Shas had asked to cancel a July 12 decision by the temporary Arrangements Committee that formed and set the makeup of the permanent parliamentary committees, arguing that the decision gave coalition members disproportionate control.

The court had rebuked the coalition in a previous hearing in August.
