Labor party leader Merav Michaeli says the coalition’s claim of “compromise” in its new proposal for changing the judicial selection process is “spin.”

“It’s not a compromise plan or a softening plan, it’s Hungary and Poland on steroids,” she says. “It is the exact opposite of the principle of separation of powers.”

She adds: “We mustn’t fall into this trap. This government, like thieves in the night, has presented a new and updated plan for a complete takeover… of the Supreme Court.”
