Supreme Court President Asher Grunis attacked Justice Minister Yaakov Neeman regarding his proposal to change the balance of power between the Supreme Court and the Knesset. Neeman recently proposed a law that would, among other things, permit the Knesset to override a Supreme Court ruling with a majority of only 65 Knesset members.

Grunis said that it was inappropriate that such a momentous law would be proposed without seeking feedback from him or other members of the Supreme Court, which he said was not done.

He referred to the proposal as a Canadian invention with no basis in most western nations, which even the Canadians do not actually use in practice.
