The Association for Civil Rights in Israel declared partial victory on Wednesday said that the High Court of Justice had directed the state to come up with a plan for equal representation of women and Arabs in the Israel Lands Authority within 45 days.

ACRI and Itach-Maaki: Women Lawyers for Social Justice filed a petition in 2010 asking the court to intervene due to alleged unequal representation.

ACRI said that Supreme Court President Asher D. Grunis on Wednesday called under-representation in the ILA unacceptable, and indicated that the court would issue a final, even stronger order on the issue without any further hearing if the state had no plan within the 45 days. The court had not sent out a transcript of the hearing at press time.
