Likud lawmakers up in arms over High Court “intervention”

A number of Likud lawmakers have protested that the high court has no jurisdiction for judging whether PM Binyamin Netanyahu will be competent to form the next government while under indictment for bribery, breach of faith and fraud. Under law, there is no bar against him his leading the next government, they maintain, if he wins the support of a 61 Knesset majority in the March general election. The High Court has set a hearing on the question for Dec. 31 before a three-judge panel, in response to a petition. Likud politicians condemn this step as unwarranted meddling in the democratic process under which prime ministers are chosen by the voter – not the judiciary or the legal authority.

    As Netanyahu fights for his political life, Israel too is in the grip of a diplomatic tsunami with this multiyear ICC investigation of Israel all the way from the Mavi Marmara to Operation Earthberm in Gaza 2018- to present, the EU label ban, and coming further BDS

      Hey, take it easy and breathe slowly. Israel will survive as it has done since it’s founding despite the tendency of Jews to squabble amongst themselves.
