Justice Minister Yariv Levin tells a supporter that he will try to pass the contentious judicial overhaul in the next Knesset session.
“I will make a supreme effort to endure justice is done and pass the legislation in the next session,” Levin says in the message published by Channel 12.
“We will organize demonstrations across the country so that they know what the majority want and hope that those who harmed us from within will stop it,” he writes.
His comments come after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered a pause to the legislation to try and reach an agreement with the opposition.
Opposition leader Yair Lapid reacts on Twitter saying: “For all those who were wondering why I am completely skeptical.”
“Netanyahu needs to make it clear that this is not his opinion, with his justice minister saying that the negotiations at the President’s Residence are a scam,” he says.
