The Ministerial Committee for Legislation decided to postpone for three months the vote on the bills that will grant the defense and interior ministers power to deport the families of terrorists to territories under Palestinian Authority control or abroad, and to revoke their permanent residence status.

Sources told The Jerusalem Post that the decision was made by the coalition party leaders on Sunday due to an objection by Interior Minister GIlad Erdan to the current form of the bill. They added that they may consider replacing the bills with a ministerial bill initiated by the interior ministry.
