Opposition leader Yair Lapid denies offering the government a compromise deal on its plans to radically overhaul the judiciary.

“I did not offer any compromise with the government,” Lapid says after fellow opposition leaders criticize his call to President Isaac Herzog to set up a presidential committee to examine the issue.

“Not only is it not true, but my proposal said exactly the opposite,” Lapid says.

“I proposed to take the issue out of the hands of a criminal government that has foreign interests, and transfer it to an independent public committee to be established by the president.”
