Religious Zionism MK Simcha Rothman, head of the Knesset Constitution, Justice and Law Committee, arrives at the President’s Residence in Jerusalem.

Rothman is seen as one of the key architects of the government’s plan to radically overhaul the justice system.

President Isaac Herzog has repeatedly implored members of the coalition to pause the plan in order to allow for talks with opposition figures to reach a compromise on the highly contentious legislation.
