Report: Levin failed to convince Histadrut chief to support new judicial proposal
Channel 12 reports that Justice Minister Yariv Levin spoke today with Histadrut labor federation chair Arnon Bar-David to try to convince him to support the new legislative proposal to allow the coalition to appoint Supreme Court judges.
The network says Bar-David did not agree to do so, though it is not yet clear whether he will actively oppose it either.
Meanwhile, Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich made similar efforts in a meeting with various top business officials, the network says, but was unsuccessful.
