An organizer of the mass pro-overhaul rally set for Jerusalem tonight warns the Supreme Court of “chaos” if it overturns the reasonableness law.
“Right-wingers, let’s stop using the term ‘constitutuonal crisis.’ There won’t be a crisis because in a democratic country, the government and Knesset representing the people have the final word,” writes Berele Crombie on X.
“If the Supreme Court wants chaos it will get chaos,” he says.
With tensions fraying ahead of a series of high-profile High Court of Justice hearings on whether to nullify controversial laws passed by the coalition, masses of right-wing supporters of the current government’s judicial overhaul were set to rally in Jerusalem this evening and urge the top court not to intervene.
Dubbed the “Liberty Demonstration” by its organizers, the protest will argue that the country’s top judges “don’t have the authority to nullify the people’s choice” and will call on them not to “drag the state into a constitutional crisis.”
