Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu promised Bayit Yehudi Chairman Naftali Bennett that he would help push a bill proposing limitations to the president's ability to pardon terrorists through the Knesset to become law.

On Sunday the Ministerial Committee for Legislation was expected to approve the bill, which was proposed by Bennett, among other ministers, but the vote was delayed for unknown reasons until next week.

A senior Bayit Yehudi source said the party leadership is "annoyed" at the delay and suspects it is a result of pressure from the left and Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein.
