Yamina, New Hope MKs help defeat Likud-backed bill to restrict who has standing at High Court

Knesset members from the “change government” set to be sworn in next week defeat a bill that would limit who has standing to petition the High Court of Justice.

The bill, backed by Likud MK Miki Zohar, was opposed by lawmakers from Yamina and New Hope, right-wing parties in the emerging coalition that have supported curbing the High Court’s authority.

Zohar lashes out at Yamina and New Hope MKs in a tweet after the vote, accusing them of having “spat in the face of the settlers of Judea and Samaria,” using the Biblical names for the West Bank.
