Labor chief calls for leaders of change bloc to meet on judicial panel

Labor leader Merav Michaeli is calling for a meeting of all leaders of the change bloc this evening to make a decision on the coalition’s representative for the judicial appointments committee.

Michaeli was promised the job but Yamina’s Ayelet Shaked has demanded it for herself. Yamina has now proposed that Shaked hold it for two years followed by Michaeli for two years.
