Israel Democracy Institute chief pans ‘disregard for law’ at cabinet

Yohanan Plesner, president of the Israel Democracy Institute, says “the disregard shown today for the Basic Law of Government, the coalition agreements signed by all the parties, as well as the legal ruling of the attorney general is unacceptable.”

He says the events at the cabinet “are a reminder to all political leaders about the need to respect both our institutions and the rule of law, or risk irrevocable damage to Israel’s democratic system.”
