Likud sanctions MK Edelstein for avoiding vote on Netanyahu recusal bill

The ruling Likud party punishes MK Yuli Edelstein for not showing up yesterday to a government-sponsored vote to prevent the High Court of Justice from having the power to suspend a prime minister from office due to conflict of interest.

Coalition whip Ofir Katz informs Edelstein that he won’t be able to file private law bills and agenda items or to speak in the Knesset on behalf of Likud for the next three weeks of Knesset activity.
