Likud MK proposes ‘Tibi Bill’ to stop MKs from aiding PA

September 26, 2011 19:16

MK Ofir Akunis (Likud) proposed on Monday a bill that would forbid members of Knesset from serving as advisers to or delegation members of another country, following UAL-Ta’al MK Ahmed Tibi’s flight to New York with the Palestinian delegation to the UN last week.

According to MK Akunis, who filed an ethics complaint against Tibi last week, the UAL-Ta’al MK’s actions went against Basic Law: The Knesset, in which every MK “commits to be loyal to the State of Israel.”

As such, Akunis has proposed that an article be added to the Basic Law: “An MK may not advice a foreign entity or state. If he does so, he may not be a candidate in the next Knesset elections.”
