Left-wing group: Mandelblit must declare PM unfit for office over his conduct

The Darkenu organization appeals to Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit to declare the prime minister unfit for office following his approval of an apparently illegal vote to appoint his ally from Likud Ofir Akunis as justice minister.

The prime minister “is bulldozing over our democracy,” the left-leaning civil society organization says. It says he must be removed from office “in light of his conduct at the cabinet meeting.”

The group says if Mandelblit does not do so, it will appeal to the High Court of Justice.

Both the court and Mandelblit last week rejected efforts to bar Netanyahu from office.
