Following a special recess session of the Knesset Tuesday to discuss the ongoing social protests, Kadima has called for a second session. A spokesman said that the request has already been submitted to the Knesset secretariat.

Citing the absences of coalition members at the special session, Kadima said in a statement, "This is further evidence of an overwhelming lack of concern by [Prime Minister Binyamin] Netanyahu's coalition over what is happening. There has never been a coalition in Israel that was so disconnected and opaque as the Netanyahu coalition."

As long as the protests continue, the spokesman added, "Kadima will continue to demand assembling the Knesset."
