Netanyahu ally: I don’t know if Knesset speaker vote will be held

Likud whip Miki Zohar, among Netanyahu’s fiercest allies, tells Army Radio that he does not know if Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein will comply with a court order for him to hold a vote on replacing him.

Edelstein has yet to speak publicly since the court ruling last night. In a response ahead of the ruling, he argued that the court did not have jurisdiction to tell him when to hold a vote, and some hardliners have urged him to defy the bench.
