Heritage Minister Amihai Eliyahu of the far-right Otzma Yehudit party encourages the government “not to accede to the High Court’s ruling,” calling it “an unlawful decision.”

Eliyahu says the decision “is irresponsible and affected by narrow political interests.”

“Judges do not have the authority to ignore Basic Laws,” he says, referring to the law the coalition rewrote to allow Deri’s appointment despite his conviction, “nor to trample over this right-wing government and its decisions.”
