Opposition leader Yair Lapid releases a statement in response to President Isaac Herzog’s speech urging compromise on judicial reform, which he calls “a proper framework.”

Lapid says as a condition for talks, the coalition must immediately halt its legislation push, which is due to come for initial votes tomorrow. He adds that any negotiations should be held at the President Residence’s “in the framework of a presidential committee.”

He also backs having the five principles that Herzog laid out serving as the basis for talks.

“Until then: the fight won’t stop, the protest won’t stop,” he says.
