Justice Minister Gideon Sa’ar announces he will bring a bill to cap prime ministerial tenures to a period of eight continuous years for an initial vote on Sunday, before the Knesset is set to disperse.

The bill had passed initial readings earlier this year, but expired ahead of the final votes, after the coalition failed to muster a majority.

The bill is not expected to pass all three readings before parliament is expected to disband, which may occur as early as Monday.
