Yamina MK: There’s no such thing as not obeying a High Court ruling

Yamina MK Matan Kahane joins other lawmakers on the right in rejecting calls urging Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein to ignore a High Court ruling, should it come, that he must hold a vote on electing a new speaker.

“There’s no such thing as not obeying High Court rulings,” Kahane tweets. “I have criticism of the Supreme Court and the prosecution… And still, there’s no such thing as not obeying High Court rulings.”

The court has indicated that Edelstein should hold the vote on who will serve as Knesset speaker — in which he is likely to lose his job — by Wednesday. It gave him until Monday night to respond.
