What Happened to Judicial Reform?

The Knesset opened its summer session today convening for the first time since the Passover recess.

Topping the Knesset’s agenda is passage of the state budget. If the budget does not pass by May 29, the Knesset will automatically dissolve, and snap elections will be called.

Today the Knesset held a festive ceremony during which United States House Speaker Kevin McCarthy spoke.

The “March of the Million” took place last Thursday evening near the Knesset and is a clear demonstration that Israelis WANT judicial reforms. The turnout, in the hundreds of thousands, succeeded in putting to bed opposition claims that Israelis are united against judicial reform. This is what the people of Israel want, and judicial reforms must be realized as soon as possible. Negotiations continue under President Herzog with wide differences of opinion. The “Million March” participants chanted loudly against compromise. We hope their voices were heard and that reform legislation will resume soon.
