Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu on Wednesday announced that he opposes a bill allowing the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee to veto appointments of Supreme Court judges, which was proposed Coalition chair MK Ze'ev Elkin (Likud) and MK Yariv Levin (Likud).

The proposed bill came in response to petitions to the High Court to veto the "Boycott Bill," and statements by Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein and Knesset legal advisor Eyal Yinon that the new anti-boycott measure would be difficult to defend.
