Kadima MK Tzahi Hanegbi seemed to reject suggestions that he resign from the Knesset after his conviction on perjury on Tuesday during a press conference.
"The legislators decided what the norms are, that the court can make an MK quit [politics] for seven years if there is moral turpitude," Hanegbi told reporters. He continued, "There are some who say the public should decide, not three judges."
Hanegbi also told reporters that he was prepared to accept the court's verdict without an appeal, but would continue to discuss his options with his lawyer.
