Yesh Atid MK calls Netanyahu a ‘traitor’ for backing bill limiting High Court

An opposition lawmaker slams Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for backing a bill stripping the High Court of Justice of its ability to strike down laws it finds unconstitutional.

“Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is betraying democracy and Declaration of Independence,” Yesh Atid MK Yael German says, according to the Walla news site.

“Today [Netanyahu] is a traitor. He isn’t concerned about democracy [or] the public,” she adds.
