Labor party leader Meirav Michaeli slams fellow opposition leaders Yair Lapid and Benny Gantz after they called for compromise on the government’s planned judicial overhaul.

Lapid earlier called on President Isaac Herzog to set up a presidential committee to find a “balanced” reform.

“I am very disturbed by the calls made by Gantz and Lapid. These are exactly the calls that our protesters oppose. These are exactly the calls that weaken their hands and may make them stay at home,” she says speaking at a meeting of her faction in the Knesset.

“Sending a proposal to [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu, whether it is directly or through some intermediary, is surrender to him,” she says.
