Mofaz: Failed gov't system prevented Tal Law replacement

August 8, 2012 19:40

The failed system of the government prevented Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu from replacing the "Tal Law" and led him to prefer sectorial interests over the majority, opposition leader Shaul Mofaz said on Wednesday.

Three NGOs working to change the system of government, Yesh Sikuy, Citizen Empowerment Center – Israel and Save Israeli Democracy, presented their joint proposal for a new system of government to  Mofaz and MK Yisrael Hasson (Kadima), who responded enthusiastically.

"Changing the system is necessary in order to guarantee governance and maintain the State of Israel's democratic and Zionist character," Mofaz said. "We cannot avoid making decisions on this issue."

The opposition leader recounted that one of the reasons Kadima joined the coalition in May was to create a new system of government with a wide consensus.
