Justice Minister Yariv Levin, a key figure in the government’s judicial overhaul push, warns the High Court against intervening against a new proposal to cement political control over the selection on judges, including to the top court.

Speaking with the pro-Netanyahu Channel 14, Levin asserts the changes address critics’ concerns that the proposal will lead to a constitutional crisis and remove doubts that the coalition’s true aim is give itself power to determine the makeup of the courts.

“This would be a red line that we won’t accept,” he says, referring to a decision to strike down the measure once passed into law.
