Movement for Quality Government petitions High Court over ‘unconstitutional’ new law

Beating Lapid to the punch, the Movement for Quality Government says it has just petitioned the High Court against the cancellation of the judicial reasonableness standard.

“The government of destruction has raised its malicious hand against the State of Israel; now it’s the Supreme Court’s turn to step up and prevent this legislation,” says organization head Eliad Shraga.

The organization says the law is unconstitutional as “it fundamentally changes the basic structure of Israeli parliamentary democracy and the nature of the regime, while de facto abolishing the judiciary and seriously damaging the delicate fabric of the separation of powers and the system of checks and balances in the State of Israel.”
