Lapid backs Supreme Court chief Hayut: We stand with her in battle for Israel’s soul
Opposition leader Yair Lapid throws his support behind Supreme Court Chief Justice Esther Hayut who launched a broadside against the government’s planned judicial reforms.
“I back every single word” from Hayut, Lapid says. “Democracy is not just the rule of the majority, a majority does not give anyone a blank check to do anything they want.”
“We will stand with her in this battle for the soul of the nation and against attempts to dismantle Israel’s democracy,” he says.
