Justice Minister Yariv Levin is demanding that at least part of the government’s judicial overhaul be passed by the end of the Knesset’s summer session, Channel 12 reports.

According to the network, Levin says that if no agreement is reached with the opposition in ongoing compromise talks, he wants the matter done unilaterally once the state budget is approved this month.

If nothing at all is done during the current session, Levin is quoted as telling associates, “What reason have I to be in the government?”
