Despite expressing a willingness to engage in dialogue with the opposition in the event that the first reading of the government’s judicial shakeup plan passes later this evening, as it is expected to do, Justice Minister Yariv Levin confirms that he hopes to wrap up the “first phase” by Knesset’s April break.

Levin says he wants to pass “the first phase by the end of the seating,” in under six weeks, “and then the second phase” afterwards, in a spontaneous response to a Yisrael Beytenu MK speaking on the Knesset floor
