Culture Minister Miki Zohar (Likud) says he does not expect any deal to come out of the ongoing negotiations on the judicial overhaul plan.

“Right now our major task is to reach a broad agreement, but if we don’t reach an agreement — and it seems that we won’t… we’ll have to advance it unilaterally,” Zohar tells Channel 12 news.

Zohar adds that if “some of the reform is not passed, this coalition cannot be preserved.”

The talks being brokered by President Isaac Herzog were largely halted this week during the budget vote and ahead of the Shavuot holiday, but are slated to resume next week, his office said.
