Knesset speaker denies Joint List MKs’ request to retake oath of office today

Knesset Speaker Yariv Levin has refused a request by four MKs from the Joint List to retake their oaths of office today, after he rejected their controversial alterations to the standard words yesterday.

Levin says he will allow them to retake the oath — and thus gain access to their full rights as MKs — on Monday at the earliest.
