The Knesset on Monday is expected to pass on its second and third reading a bill requiring a national referendum before relinquishing land in Jerusalem and the Golan Heights.

Amendments to the bill include a requirement that 80 members of the Knesset support the referendum and that there will not be a day off for voting.

The bill, submitted by Knesset House Committee chairman MK Yariv Levin (Likud), had already passed its first reading in the Knesset and Levin’s committee without the support of the Prime Minister’s Office.
