The Netanyahu-led coalition government’s move to transfer some of the judiciary’s powers to parliament has created tension between the government and the Israeli judiciary.
Hundreds of people have protested in West Jerusalem against Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s government’s proposals and policies to limit the powers of the judiciary.
Demonstrators who gathered in front of the Prime Minister’s residence carried placards with slogans against the government and Netanyahu, while the protesters raised the Israeli flag. Former Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni also participated in the demonstration. .
Justice Minister Yario Levin announced on January 5 that he was planning a law that would limit the powers of the Supreme Court and reduce the influence of the judiciary on the selection of judges.
The Netanyahu-led coalition government’s move to transfer some of the judiciary’s powers to parliament has created tension between the government and the Israeli judiciary, particularly the Supreme Court.
The Supreme Court of Israel, which serves as the highest judicial authority in the country, has the power to annul laws passed by the Assembly on this basis.
The judicial arrangements announced by the Netanyahu government include stripping the Supreme Court of its power to overturn laws passed by the Assembly. Thousands of people in Israel have been demonstrating for weeks in various cities, especially in Tel Aviv, against the judicial regulations and right-wing policies of the Netanyahu government.
