Defense Minister Ehud Barak on Monday stated that he will ask Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to hold a new coalition discussion regarding an amendment to the "Bar Association Bill" which was authorized for its second and third (final) plenum votes by the Knesset Constitution, Law and Justice Committee Monday morning.

The changes to the bill call for retroactively canceling the Bar Association’s selection of representatives to the Judicial Selection Committee.
