The Ministerial Committee for Legislative Affairs on Sunday rejected a bill that would enlarge the panel of justices in the Supreme Court from 15 to 18. Justice Minister Yaacov Neeman said that the bill would not pass "so long as I sit in office." The committee also postponed a vote on a bill to add a clause to the Golan Law which would mandate that any future Knesset vote on withdrawal or secession from the Golan Heights would require a majority of at least 80 members of Knesset.
