Knesset reject coalition’s proposed draft bill in its first reading

The Knesset has rejected the coalition’s proposed draft bill in its first reading.

The bill was brought to a vote, despite the coalition being aware it probably lacked a majority, because of a High Court demand that the government advance efforts to legislate clear rules on the recruitment of Haredi yeshiva students.

The government is currently working on a new proposal on national service. Thus, the latest failed vote appears to have been more of a stopgap to appease the court than a true attempt to pass legislation.
