Netanyahu, Shaked to powwow with chief justice on High Court bill

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked will meet with Supreme Court Justice Esther Hayut on Sunday morning to discuss a controversial Knesset bill to rein in the top court.

Hayut conditioned the meeting on ministers delaying their vote on the proposed legislation for another week. Ministers, led by Shaked, subsequently agreed to postpone the vote.

The government bill would curb the court’s power to knock down Knesset legislation.
