The head of the Knesset’s Constitution, Law, and Justice Committee is reportedly ready to accelerate his own version of Justice Minister Yariv Levin’s far-reaching judicial overhaul plans in an effort to ensure their swift passage into law.
According to Channel 12 news, the proposals drawn up by MK Simcha Rothman of the far-right Religious Zionism party will be presented to lawmakers for a discussion Sunday, ahead of a vote, not those that Levin has drafted.
Channel 12 says Benjamin Netanyahu’s coalition wants a first reading of the bill in the Knesset by February 1.
Opposition lawmakers are set to boycott the session tomorrow, it adds.
