Judge: Can High Court not intervene if a Basic Law bars Arabs from voting?

The High Court judges continue to challenge Ilan Bombach on the government’s contention that the court has no authority to review Basic Laws.

Justice Anat Baron asks whether or not a Basic Law could be passed to restrict elections to just once every 10 years, or to ban Arabs from voting.

“Who will determine if that is extremist or not?” she asks.

“Those empowered to determine the content of Basic Laws are the sovereign, which is the people through elections. The court does not determine values,” responds Bombach.
